I am blessed beyond measure to have Jeff Clarke write a guest post for Living in the Reign. Jeff enjoys reading, writing and helping others develop a passion to better understand and live out their faith in the world. I’m also a member of The Word Guild and the 2012 winner of the Canadian Christian Writing Award in the category of article-review. As a Blogger, he writes with razor sharp insight, and is definitely not afraid to challenge the status quo.
