Broken Pages

These two pages should be more presentable now:

I discovered last weekend that their behavior had deteriorated since they were first published. I didn’t know what could have sent them down the wrong path – they seemed to be perfectly good pages at first. But it was corruption on the inside, a corrupt Blog Post block, that was their downfall.

I have now rebuilt them with the noble Query Loop block, an intense and complex fellow, but very able. I expect them to now live long lives free from corruption. I commend them to you.

Next to Last

By faith we understand, if we are to understand it at all, that the madness and lostness we see all around us and within us are not the last truth about the world but only the next to the last truth.

Frederick Buechner, Secrets in the Dark: A Life in Sermons, “Faith”

To have faith is to remember and wait, and to wait in hope is to have what we hope for already begin to come true in us through our hoping.

Frederick Buechner, Secrets in the Dark: A Life in Sermons, “A Room Called Remember”

May the last truth shine through to whatever truth you are experiencing now.

May the hope you are waiting for be true in your life now.


Grace and peace to you…

The Plain Truth

If you, like me, were taught

-maybe not in words-

your worth depends on what you do

And if your gut, like mine, tells you

-not in words-

you believe this to be true

Then, in spite of what we tell ourselves in words

we, both you and I, have a situation:

Our worth, yours and mine, is a doctrine

we try to prove with our words and our deeds

Instead of the plain truth we live out each day

in the safety of each other’s arms.

Grace and peace to you this day…
