There are different ways that the members of The Special Gathering tell me that they are growing in the Lord.  I see in our members subtle changes that others would ignore.  Nevertheless, each adjustment means a transformation has occurred in their […]

Transient Treasure

Clarence taught me the transient nature of people, especially the men and women within the mentally challenged community who do not have  families.  When I met Clarence, he was living in an Adult Living Facility that housed people who were […]

I’m not sure when our faith in Christ became a political football.  But I know that it has become exactly that. My neighbor, Betsy,  is one of the most dynamic and conservative Christians I’ve ever known.  She attends Bible class […]

Pressure Time
Is there a time that you can remember that you were pressured beyond your ability to cope? There have been many for me. As a child, my mother told me again and again that I was constantly burning the candle at both ends. For years, I had no idea what she meant. When I finally understood her, I wa
