"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

It really baffles me how some fully grown adults behave at children's sports events. It's one thing to be passionate; I get that. But it's a whole other thing to get utterly mean-spirited toward small children.
We get quite a few notices, flyers, and business cards on our door, as well as the occasional bell-ringer. I think I need to make one of these.
A good reminder for all, including me, obviously
A reminder to travel, to be open-minded to the way other people do things, that the world is not centered around me, that I do not define right and wrong, that God is sovereign over all of His creation
