    Thank you, Em…

  6. Michael says:

    The last few years of declining health have taught me to number my days…and they have been the richest spiritual years of my life.

  7. Michael says:

    When Charles Bowden died I grieved…and still do.
    The only thing that softened the blow at all was the sense that he had finished his work.
    Rachel Evans was just getting started…

  8. Duane Arnold says:

    Yes, it’s the “unwritten book”, the “unfinished song”, all the potential… I look for some purpose, but I really believe that it is hidden in mystery.
    We’re still looking through the glass darkly…

  9. Michael says:

    I can’t find any purpose in most suffering…I have to take it by faith that there is.
    That faith wavers frequently…

    “My idea of God is a not divine idea. It has to be shattered from time to time. He shatters it Himself. He is the great iconoclast. Could we not almost say that this shattering is one of the marks of His presence?..”
    ― C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

  12. Michael says:

    “Could we not almost say that this shattering is one of the marks of His presence?..”

    I’ll be chewing on that one for weeks…

  13. Duane Arnold says:


    It’s worth thinking about. I don’t know that there is a “purpose in suffering” (as you wrote) but there may be an outcome or result of suffering that has value. It’s worthy of consideration…

  14. Michael says:

    Another school shooting in Colorado…children shouldn’t have to number their days…

  15. Duane Arnold says:


    Don’t even get me started…
