Role Models

There are no humans to be found within arm’s-length or through the bounds of history, clothed in total-perfection or near-perfection. This applies among Christian role models. There is but Christ alone who is entirely without fault, in whom no stain of sin is found. However, there are those nearer to Christ than you and I. … Continue reading Role Models

Unparalleled Love

This clear understanding remains at the front of our minds in all our meditations and prayers, through our learnings, servings, and ordinary doings. We cannot in anyway live and serve here in Brussels, or over in Uganda later this year, but for the grace of God. We cannot breathe–in this very moment–nor live, move, and … Continue reading Unparalleled Love

Repentance Forgotten

Below is a brief excerpt from a 92 page pamphlet from 1970. I have been reading this small booklet slowly. I would count it as a brief yet healthy read.

I had visited friends south of the border the year prior, seen their coffee shop ministry, and desired to partner with them for more than a few weeks. So, I was set to serve at … Continue reading Goose

UNCC Shooting

Today was the last day of classes (LDOC) at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC). I graduated from the college of engineering just a few years back, May of 2015. I can remember the combined joy-stress that would normally accompany the final day of regular class. There is excitement for summer plans, both … Continue reading UNCC Shooting

I’m engaged.

This is a long story, much abridged: I’m engaged. A few summers back I was working at a Gospel-driven summer camp up in the North Carolina mountains. At that camp I was up in a tree most afternoons working a pendulum swing, where people climb up high to get hooked into a couple cables, which … Continue reading I’m engaged.
