Progressive Revelation

In the last post I celebrated 2 years of Alancetotheheart.  It has been a fun ride of progressive revelation.  I have found some themes and concepts have persisted over the two years but the backdrop of theology has obviously changed.  I like to find those threads and see how they have morphed as my mind has…
