There is a trend of late towards buying as local as possible, especially when it comes to food. I like this trend and so today I decided to buy some books from a local Christian bookstore. Imagine that! I know I could have got them cheaper on Amazon as I have done for the past few years, but I decided that from now on if a book is available instore I would change my practices and shop local. I may need to get one less book on the same budget, but why not? The owner and the people working there are friends in my community. House of James is a venue where many local musicians, including my sons, have had an opportunity to play due to the owner’s vision for ministry.
