Conversations with God #17 – The Strait and Narrow Way

The following conversation with God is representative of several such conversations; a distillation, if you will of much learning over many days, weeks, even years. Whether it is “real” or the product of my mind; whether it is audible, or in vision; multiple voices or one voice – none of that matters. The principles being […]

Grace

Grace is a beautiful word.  It conjures images of: A ballerina performing Swan Lake Francis of Assisi loving all the creatures of God’s creation Mother Theresa quietly ministering in the streets of Calcutta The Kootenai River powerfully yet gracefully watering the lands of Southwest Canada, Northwest Montana, and Northern Idaho My wife’s artwork – the […]
