Musing the first meeting

We were small in number, but hearts overflowed onto the pages. It is the custom that on the first meeting of the New Year, we gather to read letters we wrote to ourselves 12 months prior. It’s a great way to reflect, to see where we have gone and in what direction we are headed.

It brings to mind this feeling of that timeless movie Back to the Future! You know, that scene where Marty arrives in this time period. The movie makers were almost on point when predicting 2015! Click here to read the reviews.

I also received this book Crazy Love by Francis Chan as a Christmas Gift and will enjoy reading through a different set of lenses when it comes to understanding the Almighty God. Looking forward to the read as I have heard good things of this work from friends.

“We are a culture that relies on technology over community, a society in which spoken and written words are cheap, easy to come by, and excessive. Our culture says anything goes; fear of God is almost unheard of. We are slow to listen, quick to speak, and quick to become angry.

The wise man comes to God without saying a word and stands in awe of Him. It may seem a hopeless endeavor, to gaze at the invisible God. But Romans 1:20 tells us that through creation, we see His “invisible qualities” and “divine nature.” (pg. 27)
