People were bringing little children to him in order that he might touch them. - Mark 10:13 (NRSV)
For over 45 years, I've cared for the needs of children — my children, friends’ children, neighborhood children, my grandchildren, and my great-grandchildren. I’ve spent much of my life changing diapers, wiping runny noses, soothing hurts, and reading storybooks.
I must admit that there have been times when I’ve questioned...
Today I will look for Jesus in the face of every child.

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.”
