We are all pilgrims trying to make progress.

(Candace took these photos for me while touring London.) John Bunyan. One of Christendom's greats. Once again, I have been reading through Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress with my writing classes and once again I have been moved to tears. As I was reading of Christian's...
