We all need some space to pause and take a deep breath. This blog is an attempt for me to create some breathing space in my life and to reflect on the hopes i have, the needs is see, and what God may be teaching me today.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."

Vision and Courage
Earlier today i went to a lecture where a victim of the Khmer Rouge talked about reconciliation, peace, and justice. I read tonight in my devotional about the injustices of South African and their past history. What the devotion recognized is one,that the injustices of our modern world are sadly reminiscent of the old testament, and two, that our world still is rife with injustice.
With that the author challenges us with these words" May God give us vision to see and courage to act"
