I want to say how much I appreciate my followers from around the world. Your posts carry me to your part of the world in a very interesting way. Thanks for showing me something new everyday. Your place in the world is important and I encourage you to keep on blogging. Peace my friends.
I was reminded this weekend of the significant role of a local pastor and the need for the local church. To me I will always find more credibility of the words and actions of a pastor/priest who is on the front lines in community dealing with the hurts and struggles day-to-day of people who are their neighbors and friends. You cannot get that same level of attention from some person you see on TV. I will always be more inspired by people who will be there for you through the good and bad times who happen to proclaim the love, grace and peace of God.
