Earlier this year, I kept hearing about one of the great sessions given at January’s Mere Anglicanism Conference. It seems the subject was, to paraphrase, “Telling Your Story.” A vivid recollection made me search through my Bible, where I store many important writings and personal letters, and there it was:...

The Narnia Connection: From England to Thailand to Charleston

The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe

There are many Christians in my practice as a family doctor in North Charleston, and it is not uncommon for us to speak the things of God together. While I was sharing with a pastor’s wife named Shannon Sims about Mere Anglicanism, the conference St. Philip’s hosted in January which this year focused on C.S.

Wearied (and Worth It!) on Wednesdays

News--Wednesday Wearies

I’m relentlessly committed to Wednesdays at our church—much like we all are to the commitments we have to carpool around town at all hours for sports and clubs and celebrations.

Why I Gave Blood (And Will Do It Again)

News--Hare Giving Blood

As I walked into the room, I couldn’t quite figure out why I was nervous. I am not bothered by needles. Shots and pricks ceased being terrifying when I was about seven. And I knew I would be in good hands. I think it was hearing stories of people passing out that made me leery of just “the unknown.” I’d never passed out before in my life....
