The genuine article

“Those who believe they believe in God, but without passion in the heart, without anguish of mind, without uncertainty, without doubt, and even at times without despair, believe only in the idea of God, and not in God himself”
―Madeleine L’Engle

Will someone you love need Emergency Room care?

After sponsoring (a modest monthly $) a Rwandan 7-year-old for the last 14 years (Sandrine), Terri and I have pictured above our new child/sponsoree. Her name is Kevine, also 7, also Rwandan. We work through World Vision and would highly recommend their programs. Please pray for both young ladies. 🙂

Our Part

“Ours is not the struggle of one day, one week, or one year. Ours is not the struggle of one judicial appointment or presidential term. Ours is the struggle of a lifetime, or maybe even many lifetimes, and each one of us in every generation must do our part.” – John R. Lewis ❤️

Guide to Surviving Grief

Cry whenever you need to.

Scream. Shout. Lay on the floor. Sob in

the shower. Be still.  Run.  Walk. Create.

Live your truth.  Share without fear.

Listen. Release your pain. Breathe.

Be courageous. Throw away the map.

Wander. Be real. Be compassionate.

Read. Seek friendship. Be vulnerable.

Don’t fear being broken.

Let Freedom Ring!

“I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizens Councilor or the Ku Klux Klanner but the White moderate who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice.”

MLK in 1963. Still true.


“There is tremendous relief in knowing that God’s love for me is utterly realistic—based at every point on prior knowledge of the worst of me—so that no discovery now can disillusion God the way I am so often disillusioned about myself.” J.I. Packer


Don’t waste life constantly reacting, constantly defending yourself and trying to talk people into a different view of you. People are overwrought & need targets for their stress & anger & a cover for their fear. Have compassion. Live your vapor-short life faithfully before God.
