Freedom

Just a verse that has been going through my mind a lot lately:

John 8: 31 and 32

31 Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. 32 And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

I think it is telling me not to be afraid of investigating truth because God is found there. The kind of truth that is illuminated by God’s wisdom is freeing, not something to fear.

So, I must spend time really listening to God as I study.

You know I think I’ve been in this place before. God was there and I learned to trust him/her to b e a bit bigger than an old image of him was. There was freedom from fear there as well.

I guess I should trust that my questions won’t scare God away.

Women as Weapons of War

It happens in the Congo. Disturbing, a bit graphic and so sad. Check out this episode of 60 Minutes.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention, Jordon.
