Through the flood

An Episcopal church challenged by the Hurrican Katrina comes back undaunted. A very moving story! The Pastor, Jerry Kramer served as a missionary in Africa before taking his position of Rector at the church and had this to say, “They don’t teach you this in seminary – trailer park maintenance 101, navigating flood waters. But […]

Oaks of Righteousness

Yep, this post is back up after I neglected to get Justin’s thumbs up on it. But now that I have…here it is again. As I may have told you, Mars Hill is in a time of transition. Basically we are waiting on God for the next step. And that, I am finding, is a […]

The Rudds are preparing to leave Texas (which they are calling their Tex-odus). They have been my blogging friends for a couple years now. But I have had the pleasure to meet and hang with them face to face. They are excited about leaving and for the next leg of their journey. So for them […]

Settling down

I am here at the public library in my new town in TX. It has been literally freezing cold this weekend. There has been a winter storm advisory in effect with ice on the streets. The news has reported hundreds of accidents throughout the DFW area. In CO we learned that God often uses this […]

Amazing encounter

I had a most amazing encounter yesterday. I went to go get a hair cut…much overdo! I struck up a conversation with the Stylist (named Glenda) that was cutting my hair.

Winter Olympics

I have to confess that I love the Olympics…winter especially. I really enjoy watching really cool sports like the Biathalon, Skeleton, and Super G! I love to see nations of the world coming together in comradery. Even though they are competing with one another, there is sense of unity isn’t there? Generally I am not […]
