Hello friends. Second posting, by golly. This Blog's got feet!

My friend R. called last night. The wheels just seem to be coming off her life. She just needed someone to talk to, but it's really hard to know what to say sometimes. Trust God? Pray? Blah blah blah. R. is really just a baby in Christ, struggling to believe. Struggling to trust God even against the evidence around her (or so it would seem). I just told her that despite what she might think, God really is in control, and will bring her through. Pray for her, will you please?

Hey, by the way, I need to figure out how to post a link, so here goes. This one is to Steve Brown's "KeyLife" web site. I have high regard for this man's ministry, for his way of communicating the grace of God. If you can't get his radio broadcasts in your area, well, the web site is the next best thing.

And here's another. It's from Richard Foster (one of my favorite writers) and it's a site devoted to the principles of "Christian spiritual formation" that have been handed down to us through the centuries. It's really for those who are interested in deepening their walk with the Lord through the practice of spiritual disciplines. Find it here.

Finally, here you'll find my personal homepages. The first page is dedicated to encouraging the Christian students at the university where I work (librarian), with links to a number of other pages that recount the WW2 experiences of my Father-in-law, Bob Flynn.

From Stormie Omartian's The Power of Praying Together:

"We must not underestimate the power of group prayer in straightening and clearing the path we are to travel and then enabling us to walk on it."
