And I still haven’t met Mark Lowry

Whelp, I’m three for three you guys. I have had three chances to meet Mr. Lowry in the past five years and I struck out every time. — I don’t mean that nearly as stalkerish as that sounds, I promise. I’m just a fan and would simply like to meet him and thank him for…
