Because We Are Living It


I’m less than halfway through “Bonhoeffer” by Eric Metaxas. I may have started reading this book a year ago or so! I don’t get to read at lunch as much as I used to when I lived in Arizona. These days, when I read this book I must confess and […]

On Healing and the Church 2.19


I haven’t stopped thinking about the topic of healing since my earlier post. My mind has been racing about this all morning. So much so that I had to start typing before making coffee. Oops. She fell back asleep after I told her I’d awaken her after I make coffee. […]
