Building Relationships…..


It is such a privilege to be able to help a ministry team, a new church initiative, a training program like those involved with the Instituto Biblico Luterano.

Spending time with people…..there is no substitute for that when a team must accomplish something.  It is the raw material out of which a collaborative effort is born.  God has wired us that way.  We sometimes want to just charge on to the task at hand.  That is the poorer route.  It doesn’t take us far.  The sharing of mundane everyday things … a meal, a cup of coffee, a joke. That takes us down the road where trust can build.  We share truth about ourselves.

I had a wonderful evening with friends who invited me to be part of their everyday life and world. What a gift and privilege.

The simple is profound.
