    Nicely said… Finding that ‘first love’, as finding those first images, involves our heart cracking open. It’s not comfortable, but I think it is necessary.

    Thank you, Duane.

    It’s very uncomfortable…but it’s life.

    You do so much for so many, especially in maintaining this site. This was one of the few safe spaces I’m aware of where one could actually have a discussion about the current state of the world, whether than a yelling match. We may disagree, but most of it is amiable.

    Duirng the past two years i’ve bewen falling back on “trust God and do the next thing” (j Oswald Sanders, I believe). I love teaching, and the kids still needed a teacher, so I’ve been there. I have developed an avoidance for people who want to fight (from either side). I do try hard to make conversation and encourage pleasant conversation. It’s not the best, but it has preserved my sanity.

    If we claim Christ as Savior, we will all be together in heaven. I don’t think there will be rooms for vaxxers and anti-vaxxers. I hope by then that the splendor of the Lord will swallow up all our spats and turn our attention to bigger things.

    Thank you, Linn.

    The prospect of everybody being together in heaven makes me wonder if they is any potable water in hell…but I have a bad attitude at the moment…

    People aren’t as contentious where I live, but I did think of shipping a few students to Abu Dhabi this morning in a box without air holes.

    late to the party. Great quote–I’m late to that party too. Hold onto purpose; it’s the dirt hope grows in.
