Movement

There’s this little four-year-old kid that attacks my leg every time I get to camp. He’s so small, has just the right amount of chub around his arms and belly, and sprints in his swag green polo to leech onto my my knee when I arrive for the team coordination meeting each day. People who’ve…

Home

When I was in 2nd grade I had to learn and memorize some personal basics like my landline number and my house address. I remember getting off the elementary school bus and looking at the black sticker numbers “5796” placed outside my house on a white porch column. I repeated them over and over and…

Some Theology:

Excerpts from “On Sin in Believers” by John Wesley with Selena thoughts.

Why?

A confession from a friend: Selena, God is real. He exceeds all belief, even the greatest belief of His Divinity. He is more than we could ever fully believe. He welcomed me home in such a tangible way today during chapel. I am home. While I know that I might doubt this in a few…
