I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power . . . to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge — that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. - Ephesians 3:17-19 (NIV)
One morning the Holy Spirit taught me a lesson about the love of Christ through my son Melvin. Melvin has autism. He is 44 years old now, and what a journey we have had!
Two weeks ago Melvin said to me, “I would like to talk with my dad before...
Christ’s love for me knows no bounds.

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.”
