What I’m celebrating: My brother, V.C. Jones III a.k.a “Trey Jones” published his first novel! Now, in my family, the writing thing is genetic. My grandfather was a best-selling civil war author, and my father was a playwright. One specialized in fiction, and the other in non-fiction. So when the gene pool decided to trickle…

The following is an article by Wallace Henley is from the Christian Post, dated March 15th, 2013. It’s an excellent article, except for one point. St. Patrick was a Welshman, not Scottish.
