Dear Faith Friends,

We have seen so many ancient ruins of history and pre-history.  Delphi, Corinth, Epidaurus, and Mycenae in the first six days in Greece!

Delphi, as the center of Hellenistic worship, amazes with its sense of sacred place. Mycenae is overwhelmingly large and gives reality to myth.  Epidaurus brings Greek public life alive with its impressive architecture and sound projection.  It is the simple, quiet ruins of Corinth that touches me deeply.

The bema at which the Apostle Paul was brought up on charges of blasphemy, for speaking of a living God, is remarkably unimposing.  It helps me recall that it is ordinary lives that walk out with courage into everyday places to tell the good news of Jesus.

We don’t need myths and heroes.  We are the people of a wondrous God.

Blessings on the journey,
I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that has been given you in Christ Jesus, for in every way you have been enriched in him…so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ. – I Corinthians 1:4-7
