1. Thank you for this Denis. I was just commenting to a friend last night about the need for the Church to exhibit love. That is the attraction of the Gospel. It is nice to know others are pondering the same things.

  2. I think the saying, “We have seen the enemy and he is us” is true. I struggle with being salt and light – that’s a messy business. I struggle with opening my heart and home to very different peoples. And, I do not believe enough in prayer to put the time into praying, just for the situations and issues I know about. If there were just one indicting factor, it would be that i often do not pray…then listen for the answer. I am grateful that God still uses me, but I don’t think I am as usable as I might be
