I appreciate the encouragement about my beard. It's fun. But it is not yet reaching anything near "epic" proportions. Not even at our church, since Brian Malcolm is way out in front (and that's an old photo). With the encouragement I also hear a common lament, "I cannot grow a beard!" This is typically accompanied by the tearing of their robes. And when men like Ed Stetzer say they want to grow a beard, I am compelled to help. So, I'll let everyone in on on a little secret -- The Beard Generator!
