Thursday’s Thirst

  • I fell into a rut a few weeks ago – perhaps even many weeks ago. I think the minimal face-face contact with people was getting to me. I started contacting a few people to make a couple home visits but had to really push myself just to “dial” the phone. This week, however, after the third straight visit ended with the individual saying to me, “Thanks, I really needed this,” I felt God raising me out of the rut.

  • It is dangerous – I know – to comment on a book, but I am over halfway through it, so I am willing to take the risk. The book is “Christians in the Age of Outrage – How to bring our best when the world is at its worst”. The author is Ed Stetzer, the dean of the School of Mission, Ministry, and Leadership at Wheaton College – and the holder of the Billy Graham Distinguished Chair of the Church.

  • New month – new topic – new approach – searching for a renewed attitude! Tuesday was one of the more frustrating days I have had in a long time. It felt like I ran into roadblocks at every turn – most (but certainly not all) coming during my efforts to navigate the system of being in contact with an individual in jail.
