Welcome to my blog about living as apprentices of Jesus! I am passionate about spiritual transformation and about helping others become like Jesus for the sake of others.
One of my favorite quotes is: "Whatever job we get and whatever task we are assigned can serve as a container for grace" (Eugene Peterson in "Practical Resurrection"). I pray that the words and sentences on this blog may also serve as "containers of grace" for its readers.
I ordinarily post on Wednesdays and Saturdays and welcome your comments on any post!

Last night was the last class of a series on my booklet Living as a Wounded Healer. We were talking about the difference between co-dependency, enabling, and Christian service. Someone asked a question which I couldn’t quite decipher. So I … Continue reading
