For You

Gift of Truth

Me: “You are racist.” She: “Racism exists.  You are choosing to participate in racist ways.” Which one is better? My comment was used in part of a longer example in discussing discrimination and reconciliation.  She picked up on my hypothetical comment and suggested how I might say it better, citing word choice as a large, contributing factor in […]

In the Presence of a Prophet

  I’ve had “prophetic” words spoken over/into my life–words of knowledge, Holy Spirit-directed, human-uttered, divine words of revelation–that were absolutely real and totally true.  I still remember the flood of emotions that swept over my spirit during those precious encounters.  And while I can pretty much count them on one hand for they have been few, […]
