Our Response to Orlando

No doubt our nation was devastated to see the news of the Orlando massacre. Thinking of the precious lives, deeply loved by God, who were senselessly killed, who can imagine?  Their families, their friends, their co-workers.

Paris and the World

Who can comprehend the carnage and devastation? We have precious friends who live in Paris and I was seriously frantic as I went to my computer to message them.  They are safe and their church is heavily involved in ministering to the city.                         …

Recently my paths crossed with an old friend, Dave.  We went to school, youth group and graduated together.  We hung around in the same group of friends. Not too long ago Dave was given a grim diagnosis – 1% chance of survival without a bone marrow transplant, 60% with the transplant. My heart has been…
