Last week, the world lost a brilliant minister of the gospel. Rachel Held Evans wrote poignant and often challenging words to and about the Church. She spoke for so many voiceless people. Now, may she enter into her well deserved rest. Please join me in praying for her family and close friends. Please join me in remembering her by taking up the mantle to speak for the voiceless, the down-trodden, the oppressed, the sick, the disheartened, the widow, the orphan, and the hopeless. Let’s spread the gospel message that God’s love knows no boundary and includes EVERYONE! Thank you Rachel for modeling courageous truth-telling!
Illusions are powerful and often mistaken for truth. However, they are not the truth. They are lies. So, when did disillusionment become a bad thing? When we are stripped of our illusions then we are vulnerable. When we are stripped of our illusions we are open to see truth more easily. “Lord, Open our eyes, so that we may see.”
