Of Jars and Feathers

Of Jars and Feathers

I came across a powerful image on my Google+ conversation stream. It was the image of a lovely, pure white feather lying on the gritty, cracked pavement of some street somewhere. I’ve attached it, with permission, here to this blog post so you can also see it. I...

The Kingdom of God – Is It Here?

The Kingdom of God – Is It Here?
