What does it mean to fight for your life? Well, Dale and I start each day by reading the Gospels, and it absolutely blows my mind every time I read those words. Jesus did and said just what he felt, straight out. He loved everyone without reservation—the rich and the poor. And at the same time he tackled people when they sinned: with compassion, but straightforwardly. Not that I could ever do that. But that's how I've wanted to live my life, with that kind of fervor.
I was told about Bruderhof at SJC, and had signed up for the daily emails, and was always struck by how right-on the emails seemed. But somehow I forgot to sign up for them after I left. Once again, they are treating me to a refreshing taste of truth.
