I’m just a girl Standing on the edge Ready to jump Knowing I can fly The water waits below His word And I can never dive deep enough There is no bottom Only grace
The collective voice of our cultural paradigm can be heard from sea to shining sea. We are reminded that hate is never the answer, that bullying is prevalent and tragic and that our differences should be celebrated rather than used for purposes of division or judgement. The most well-known passage of scripture at one time … Continue reading Why I’m Choosing not to Teach my Children “Tolerance”
The thing about being in the Potter's hands (Jeremiah 18, Isaiah 45) is that we don't always know what he's forming us into.
