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!

Recovery in the Bible (RIB)
A clarity came to me this morning as I considered the coordinates of the Cross: the vertical, the horizontal... the most important intersection we encounter in this life.
Before me was the First Commandment, vertical, as the first and foremost thing: the Direct Connect from me to Him.
Then came the Second Commandment, horizontal, the second thing: Divine Connections imparted to me by Him.
It is so simple, so elegant, if only I follow. I have a brother in Christ named David Bolton, who has said,"It is profoundly simple -- and simply profound." No wonder Christ urged us, who are so weary and heavy-laden, to come daily to the Cross. He is that place, that convergence, that intersection through Whom we enter Relationship and Relationships, not religion, and come into The Fullness of Life.
