1. Boredom - It was simply time for a change.
2. Vibrancy - It's winter (even here in Georgia). That means it is mostly cold and gray outside. I wanted more color to brighten up this blog. The blue sky at the top points to sunnier days ahead.
3. Relevancy - I selected this Spanish arena as a reminder to us all that Christians still face terrible persecution in much of the world. Just as believers perished many years ago in Roman arenas (much like the one here), thousands of Christ-followers still die each year simply for their faith. For those of us who live in easier places let's not forget our mistreated brothers and sisters.
