I’m a 70-something wife, mother, grandmother, retired CPA, resident of Tacoma (formerly Dallas). I’m a life-long Presbyterian, on the Session at Bethany Presbyterian Church, and interested in the greater national and international church. I’m also a Toastmaster, and I love to read and knit in my spare time (when I’m not tweeting, or blogging.) I’m passionate about social justice (anti-racism, environmental activism, hunger initiatives, income disparity, feminism, ablism, etc.).
Christ is Alive. Words by Brian Wren, 1968
Not throned afar, remotely high, untouched, unmoved by human pains, but daily, in the midst of life, our Savior in the Godhead reigns…
In every insult, rift, and war, where color, scorn or wealth divide, Christ suffers still, yet loves the more, and lives, where even hope has died.
Sometimes I go about pitying myself, and all the time I am being carried on great winds across the sky.
I sought the Lord, and afterwards I knew, He moved my soul to seek Him, seeking me. It was not I that found, O Savior True, No, I was found of Thee.
