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 Sunday and Thursday and welcome your comments on any post!

My mother carefully saved remnants from a lifetime of sewing in a closet in her sewing room. There lived a brimming-over bounty of ribbed burgundy corduroy, pajama-smooth flannel, perky cottons, formal wools and tweeds. Many of these cherished fragments came … Continue reading
