Philip asked the Ethiopian eunuch, “Do you understand what you are reading?” - Acts 8:30 (NIV)
In 1965, I was in a special reading class to develop my comprehension skills. When I walked into the class on the first day, my immediate thought was, I'm stupid, because I would be sitting at a table with other people my peers had called “stupid.”
Acts 8:30-31 reminds me...
Wisdom is a fountain oflife to one who has it(Prov. 16:22, nrsv).

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
