Thanks for the love, my younger brother and (because of Jesus) my son in the Lord. You are a great encouragement to me!

Thanks for your encouragement and suggestion, Rosalinda!
John, thanks for reading! Yes, I know the challenge of going after our "problem children." I'm sure our record is mixed on this, but when we've gone after them and found them willing to return, it results in enriched and deepened relationships. Tracy, thanks. We're looking forward to seeing you Sunday. Mary, you are one of those authentic people that just won't allow the rest of us to linger at a "pseudo-community" level!

Well said Mike. We have a similar saying at WCC: "Build a bridge of trust that will bear the weight of Truth."
Thanks for commenting Mike. Great to hear from you!

Thanks for your comment, Spinning Wheel. We're making Christmas cookies today and taking them to our neighbors. If you have any other ideas that are working for you, let us know!
Thanks for commenting Amy! It just goes to show how important youth pastors are to our students, doesn't it?

Thanks for the great comments, Matt and Jonathan! Matt, your comment reminds me of Col. 3:23 "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men." In other words, attempt great things for God! Jonathan, I love that Lewis quote! You're right to remind us that desires are not necessarily evil, they are fallen (weakened?). Reminds me of Psalm 37:4 "Delight yourself in the LORD,and he will give you the desires of your heart." This verse points to a possible restoration of our desires to God's design.

Thanks for commenting on my blog, Aunt Theda. I tried to reply to your email, but it bounced back "undelivered." Would love to see you and Uncle Ralph this summer.
