12 days of Christmas: "I Am Among You As One Who Serves"

That's what the young man said to his friends gathered around him. "But I am among you as one who serves." And, that my friends is what I discovered in 2014 as I was led to speak out on behalf of local church unity in Christ; Jesus makes me brave to serve in ways that do not conform with the rest of the world. Speaking prophetically about Christian unity has cost me a couple of friends, for whom I still grieve and pray. However, there's been immeasurable joy and peace, many more faithful friends and strong new friends too. I will report two things. One, sales have been strong of Eyes on Christ: Reflections on Being the People of God in the PC USA) From My Heart to Yours, irrespective of the fact that we gifted ~300 copies (majority, at our own cost).  Two, Path of Grace, my first children's story book was born with the New Year dawning. YES, it is published and will soon be available on Amazon. I am grateful to The Unknowns for their unconditional support.
