Creating Stable Communities

"What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured."~American Author Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Aslan, Kendall Payne

Don't stop your crying on my account
A frightening lion, no doubt
He's not safe, no he's not safe
Are you tempted now to run away?
The King above all Kings is coming down
But He won't say the words you wish that he would
Oh, he don't do the deeds you know that He could
He won't think the thoughts you think He should
But He is good, He is good

I know you're thirsty, the water is free
But I should warn you, it costs everything
Well, He's not fair, no He's not fair
When He fixes what's beyond repair
And graces everyone that don't deserve
No one knows Him whom eyes never seen
No, I don't know Him but He knows me
He knows me, He knows me
Lay down your layers, shed off your skin
But without His incision, you can't enter in
He cuts deep, He cuts deep
When the risk is great and the talk is cheap
But never leaves a wounded one behind

Summit 2010

Driving 28 hours to Colorado after our flights were cancelled! Jacob, Rebecca and Caleb were in the back seats!
Quick trip to Garden of the Gods!

Dinner with Dan Kimball (main event speaker at Summit) and friends!
80's night fun!

"D-Ferg" and the missionary rap!

Pre-Wedding Photos!

New York Snow!

New York got hit...
...with two feet of snow...
...the night and morning of Isaac & Allie's wedding!
This is what we woke up to - but the wedding went on as planned!
And inside the hearth fires kept burning!

Mind that Which is Eternal

Mind that which is eternal, which gathers your hearts together up to the Lord, and lets you see that you are written in one another's hearts; meet together everywhere, growing up in the spirit to the Lord, the fountain of life, the head of all things, God blessed forever!

Do not let hard words trouble you nor fair speeches win you; but dwell in the power of truth, in the mighty God, and have salt in yourselves to savor all words, and to stand against all the wiles of the devil, in the mighty power of God. - George Fox (Letter 23)
