Celebrating 6 Impossible Things Before Breakfast in 2017 …

“Alice laughed: ‘There’s no use trying,’ she said; ‘one can’t believe impossible things.’ ‘I daresay you haven’t had much practice,’ said the Queen. ‘When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'”  Alice in Wonderland. Alice in Wonderland is a […]

Fireside Reading: Year-End Newsletter is Here!

For we Southerners, at least, we’re having a cold winter—heating up my gratitude for our wood-burning stove which not only generates warmth for our home but also just the right sacred space to ease back and reflect upon the year of 2017.

God’s Rabbit Hole

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed in at least six impossible things before breakfast.” Alice, Alice in Wonderland I can only imagine that Cindy Kuo must be a little mad like Alice!

Hovering Hope

“In the beginning…the earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters” (Genesis 1:1-2, ESV). “I don’t know how to do this. I can’t do this. I don’t want to do this. It’s just too much.” […]
