Dear Friends, As we go to press – which these days means as we prepare to hit the send button – 79 men have registered for this weekend’s Men’s Retreat. I’m delighted with the response. More important, I’m delighted about the friendships that will be forged...

Dear friends,  Usually when we go on our Youth Ski Trip, we assume our adventure will take us to colder and icier conditions. This year, however, we discovered otherwise. Most of the time we spent in Colorado was a few degrees warmer than in Texas. While we were hearing of ice storms back...
