  • On May 30, 1978, the blood of Jesus cleansed me from all my sin.
    Actually, that happened 2,000 years before that, but I didn’t know it until that day.
    As my Jesus-anniversary present this year, I bought myself a CD of old hymns set to new music. It’s called “For All the Saints,” the third Indelible Grace project. (See www.igracemusic.com)
