I am a free-lance singer and writer trying to practice "saying what I mean, meaning what I say, and not saying it mean." My goal on this blog is to provoke conversations in which we can be real in sharing with one another -- free to express our points of view, even when we differ. Just today, I posted MY CYBER LINKS under that label (see adjacent list). I am available, and I love it when we get to encourage one another!

Gathering in Christ
And Jesus cried out with a loud voice and breathed His last.
[When Jesus died on the Cross], he
switched the whole of the human race back into a right relationship with God.
He made redemption the basis of human life -- that is, He made a way for every
son of man to get into communion with God.... The Cross did not happen to Jesus: He
came on purpose for it. The Cross is the gateway whereby any individual life of
the human race can enter into union with God. When we get to the Cross, we do
not go through it; we abide in the life [His Blood] to which the Cross is the gateway... God and sinful man merge with a crash and the way to life is opened --
but the crash is on the heart of God…
