UPDATE Sept 2021: I have come to believe that Jeff Crippen does not practise what he preaches. He vilely persecuted an abuse victim and spiritually abused many other people in the Tillamook congregation. Go here to read the evidence. Jeff has not gone to the people that he spiritually and emotionally abused. He has not apologised to them, let alone asked for their forgiveness.
Change of Publishing Schedule
Jeff and Barb have decided to change the blog’s publishing schedule because we have been finding ourselves stretched pretty thin trying to keep up with all the work. We are going to only publish posts on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. The Sunday post will continue to have a devotional/encouragement flavor. The weekday posts will be our normal weekday fare.
Now, here’s the rest of our update, courtesy of TWBTC.
We want to let you know about additions we have made these past two months to both our Resources page and the website. Check them out!
