The Last Shiloh
In a few hours, members of the Samford community will gather in Reid Chapel for the last Shiloh ever. It makes me sad in way but so excited in others to see what God is going to do. I wish with my whole heart that I could be there, but seeing as I am nine … Continue reading The Last Shiloh
