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 [Paul] was three days
without sight, and neither ate not drank].
Saul was a Pharisee of the Pharisees, a
man of integrity and conscientiousness… He was conscientious when he hounded
the followers of Christ to death.Then came disaster, when all Saul’s world was flung to pieces. God
arrested him [and changed him entirely -- including his name -- from Saul to
Paul].But out of the inscrutable
disaster and upset, God brought Paul into a personal experience of Himself. The
stride of God is never anything less than union with Himself.
