Vision

Real vision produces commitment, produces a plurality of strong leaders and results in strong team commitment. Real vision produces people of character by purifying hearts in the fire of cataclysmic change. Real vision produces a people who work together and care deeply for one another. Real vision produces enduring, supportive, distinctively different kinds of community. It casts out the status quo and forges ahead into uncharted waters where the mettle of pure hearts is forged. And after all of the superficiality of human endeavor is burnt away in the fire of struggle all that is left is abiding, overwhelming love. Continue reading

night words

Psalm 22 verse 1 and 2
“My God, my God, why have You forsaken me? Far from my deliverance are the words of my groaning. O my God, I cry by day, but You do not answer; And by night, but I have no rest.”
