I decided to share posts from Cru bloggers with you, too, but as a seven-day devotional series. I thought you might enjoy starting each day reading a post as you prepare for this last week before Christmas. Continue reading 7-Day Advent Devotional Series
Even missionaries do it. I did it last Monday.
We don’t take advantage of opportunities to talk about Jesus.
I have long said that Delta’s seat assignment system would be God’s appointment system for me. So last Monday, why didn’t I take more initiative to talk with the man from New Zealand about Christ? Flying to Dallas, he was talkative. We talked about the economy (he is deeply concerned). We talked about political instability in Nigeria (he has done business there).

Thank you to Taryn who posted a comforting perspective of the Newtown, Connecticut, shooting and how that impacts us while celebrating Christmas. This excerpt is from her blog, Waiting on God:
Our world is dark with mourning. Our tears won’t stop. Parents and non-parents have ruptured hearts. Americans’ and non-Americans’ spirits are heavy. All of us grieve. The heart of the Great I Am grieves more than any of us.
The heart of the One who created those precious lives lost in Connecticut and loved them with an unfathomable love. Continue reading “Christmas and Tragedies”
