Tumbleweeds and Birdsong

  Outcasts.  Who loves the unlovely in our world?  Or, more specifically, in the church, the Body of Christ?  Who decides which of us belongs in the box called “untouchables”?  I am in that box many times, but God did not put me there.  Many times, others place me there.  Sometimes, I consign myself to...

Peace Like a River

Have you ever looked at a river? I mean really looked at one…its nature, its flow, its changeability yet still remaining the same?  Rivers overflow, meander peacefully, rush down in white water rapids, pool deeply, wear mighty boulders down to pebbles, while gently feeding tremendous trees, providing a wonderfully nourishing environment for plants and wildlife....
