I read this article today after a friend from Highland posted it on Facebook. As I read it, I felt my heart just about to burst with excitement. This right here is gospel. There was a lot of fighting over whether or not to eat a chicken sandwich a few months ago. It was polarizing. Finally....something that seemed so impossible begins to find the Light. I love Dan for this...and I appreciate Shane for opening his heart to Dan. We have a lot to learn from these men. What if churches responded more like this?
I pray that God will break down walls and that the Spirit would fill us up with His perspective as we all try hard to love each other. Be encouraged, blog family!

Last night, the ACU community endured yet another loss suffered from a tragic automobile accident. One of my friends and a participant in our worship ministry, Bo Braddock, was driving the automobile that was struck head-on, killing Lindsey Smith who was seated next to him. Lindsey is a life-long friend of my intern, Trey Wrape. So many people touched. So many grieving. Please pray for my friends and for the ACU community and the Smith family who are grieving in a way that seems unimaginable to me.

I recently finished the PBS mini-series "The Abolitionists". It is really great. I often feel astounded that people who were Jesus followers could have turned a blind eye to and even participated in the appalling practice of slavery. It makes me wonder what things I might be blind to...and it makes me want to lean even more into the mind of Christ over my own thinking because I know none of us are immune to being deceived.
