3:213 – And Peggy. You Are Not A Throwaway #faithbites #faithjourney #hamilton peggy Setting My best friend and daughter love the musical “Hamilton“.

June 14 – Come Out Of Your Corners

3:166 – Come Out Of Your Corners #faithbites #faithjourney corners Setting I know life experiences color how you see things. When I was younger,I believed there were many more people I’m the center.

Apr 7 – The Third Act

3:98 – The Third Act #faithbites #faithjourney #holyweek third Most stories have three acts: the beginning, the action or middle, and the end of the story. We won’t talk about the denouement.

Apr 3 – Construction: Building The Chair

3:94 – Construction: Building the Chair #faithbites #faithjourney construction I am no construction worker. My hands weren’t designed to build things.

3:73 – Pray. Comfort. Serve. #faithbites #faithjourney comfort It’s a scary time for most of us: schools are closing, businesses sending people home, stores are being cleaned out of supplies, extra curricular activities cancelled, markets swinging wildly, and confusing messages are all around.

Feb 27 – Share The Word

3:58 – Share The Word #faithbites #faithjourney share We learn early that caring is sharing. We tend to share things like food, money, germs (sorry, flu season around here), tasks, and feelings. While these are important, they often only scratch the surface of what we really should be sharing: God’s Word. Today, I shared with a friend a copy of […]
