    Duane, beautifully stated. That is my continuing prayer, that others might see Christ in me. I sure don’t!

    Many thanks… Yes, I think that is the point – that even when we can’t see it, others will. Maybe that is a part of what grace is all about.

    I may have told this story here before…
    I was riding my bike when someone saw me (from a car, I think) and called out “Jesus Christ, I haven’t seen you in ages!”
    Having passed her, I rode back to her. She said “Oh sorry, you look like someone I know”
    She explained that I looked like her brother-in-law, but I went on my way hoping that Christ would be seen in me by others.

    Reminded me of a comment i once heard on the “Imitation of Christ” to the effect that the goal is not to imitate Christ, but to live Christ…
    Yes, wonderful post, Dr. Duane. You should treasure your father’s confidence (and love) that he trusted you to be his executor, i think….

    Yes, I’ve learned through the years that people express their love in very different ways and for different reasons. It is a matter of learning to accept what is given…
