    Thank you for this! As a fellow servant, may I just recommend that you make the white part of your website’s banner collapsible? When the top banner takes up 40% of the screen space, it makes it hard to read and may turn some people away before they’ve had the opportunity to be drawn closer to Jesus through your content.
