Dear Friend,

As you reflect back on your life, how many specific church services can you recall? What about Sunday school classes, or Bible studies, prayer meetings, concerts, seminars, camps, retreats or Board meetings? How many stand out? Who spoke? What was the theme of the talk? What songs were sung? Where did you sit? Who sat next to you? Who was in the audience? What impact did the meeting have on you?

Dear Friend,

"A Christian is one who bets his life that Christ is right."
Elton Trueblood in " A Place to Stand" (p. 60)

Willie Nelson's classic song, "On the Road Again", sums up part of my life at the moment. For the past 7 years, while addressing my bladder and lung cancer, I have stayed close to home and limited my travel. This has been good for many reasons.

Dear Friend,

On most mornings I drive a few miles to the small historic town of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, for a slow jog on the paths alongside the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers. It's a beautiful and peaceful setting occasionally interrupted by the sound of freight trains crossing the bridge from West Virginia to Maryland. Trains bring out the boy in me. I love their sound and power. I wonder where they've been and where they're going. I've always preferred traveling by train to any other means of travel.

Dear Friend,

You never know who may be in an audience, or what impact a concept or comment may have on a person's life. During a recent two-week visit to Asia, I spent four days at Handong International Law School inPohang , Korea . HILS is part of the 3,500-student Handong Global University , a Christian university founded in 1995, that has already become one of the most respected institutions in Korea . Lynn Buzzard, chairman of Advocates' Board of Directors, has served as the first Dean of the Law School .

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.

In the Kingdom of God, no one can see so long as
he remains merely a spectator.
