Pray for Life

As I sit and reflect… Some of my great joys during the time here in Brussels have been seeing the men of the church gather to pray early on Wednesday mornings—before work; seeing believers gather to sing praise, and read, and pray, on Tuesday mornings—spilling over into the afternoon; and seeing the church come together … Continue reading Pray for Life

George

On Sunday, I visited the local international Baptist church. This was only my second Sunday with them during this visit in Belgium, and it is where I will be involved for the remainder of my time here. I have been grateful for the hospitality and warm welcome shown to me by the Body in this … Continue reading George

A bride who longs for the perfect wedding day in May. A bride who longs for the collection of onlookers and participants. A bride who longs for the white dress and champagne. A bride who longs for the flowers, perfect pictures, and dance. A bride who longs for the new last name. A bride who … Continue reading ‘some bride’

Weekend Report

I understand it is Tuesday, and this report covers more than the weekend. I am weary of thinking of titles for my sporadic, jumbled mess of words. If I think of anything impressive while writing, I’ll update the title for you. I don’t want my words to be read because of a catchy title. Hey, that’s … Continue reading Weekend Report
