Encounter Thursday

Remember when you were younger? With your hands covered in blue paint, mud seeping through holes your shoes, and an exuberant amount of energy to burn. Innocent bliss. With a small mind, and a large heart, you dreamed of growing up to be someone important–a prima ballerina, an astronaut, a …

Encounter Tuesday

Change. It surrounds us. Every day there are little changes in our schedules, new opportunities, new people and choices to be made. But change can be so much more. It can often be difficult to think about change. It can look like a mountain. An impossible task. Yet others can …

Encounter Monday

Encounter Friday: Love

Encounter Thursday: Love

The world has a lot wrong with it. Rape, stealing, murder, slavery- if it’s not one thing it’s another. Have you ever turned on the news, seen all the horrible things that go on and just want to shut it all out? I have. More than once. We are so …
