I can’t grasp Jesus. I know who He is. I understand why He came and what He accomplished. Still, there are facets within Jesus that take my breath away. 5 Breath-taking Views of Jesus #1 Starting with a Stable I struggle with the simplicity and humbleness of birth in a barn. I wouldn’t want to be born in a barn. Nor would I want to give birth there, either. #2 Washing Feet I don’t like feet. So often I’m awkward around others. I’m too c»

Breathe (Photo credit: sausyn) As I am praying and preparing for the next ministry opportunity here at St. Mark UMC, this entry in my personal journal from about two weeks ago served as a good reminder. Time is not running out. Breathe. Don’t focus on the results, instead focus on the journey that you are on. Pay attention to the wonderful things that is happening to you and all of us on the journey. Because, you can’t control the outcome. Yo»
