Confess your sins to each other. - James 5:16 (NIV)
Early one morning, an elderly neighbor rang my doorbell. “Fetch your Bible,” he said. “Read James 5:16. What it says is what I have come to do.”
I was amazed! This man was a retired headmaster and a community leader. He was respected as an exemplary Christian who held weekly...
By confessing my sins, I open myself to Christ’s forgiveness.

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.”
