Peacemaking & The Fall

Incredibly keen insights from GH (in Maryland) … I am going to mull on them for awhile. Happy Tuesday! Love, Tara B. “Dear Tara, I was too busy studying and preparing lessons for the young Moms’ class at VBS when your e-mail came inviting participation in your on-line survey.

Submission and Headship at 100 Feet Below the Ocean

On two of our ten SCUBA dives last week, Fred’s depth gauge broke. (Bummer!) It wasn’t dangerous or anything, but it meant that our normal dive buddy pattern had to adjust even after we had descended.

I’m back!

Hi friends! I’m just back from vacation and although I’m in the midst of chaos around here, I just wanted to say hi. (Our chaos is even more than the normal post-vacation mess because we had a bunch of home repairs done while we were gone … I’ll try to post some photos if I can. But that brings up …

Suffering and Glory

This week I received another email from pastor and professor (and missionary and hero of the faith!) Ajith Fernando and I was (yet again!) reminded of the goodness and the glory of God … and thus drawn to worship Him more rightly. Since so much of peacemaking involves suffering … (check out my “Search Past Blog Entries” on Suffering and …
