Year of Mercy - 2016

Editor: Throughout 2016 we have been fortunate to publish the long-form writing of many of our Mercy authors. Some of these articles originated as presentations for different audiences; others were originally published elsewhere; the remainder were written for Mercy eNews at our invitation.
