By grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God. - Ephesians 2:8 (NRSV)
Upon achieving the senior rank of Chief Petty Officer in the U.S. Navy, I adopted this saying: “Never forget where you came from.”
As a young adult I walked away from the faith that had been modeled for me by loving Christian parents. I forgot where I came from, even...
I can model faith for others as it has been modeled for me.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
