Freedom and Grace

Vladimir Kara-Murza is vice-chairman of Open Russia, an international Russian pro-democracy movement. He was poisoned twice by Russian operatives, in 2015 and again in February of 2017. Both times he fell into a coma and suffered multiple organ failure, but survived both attempts to kill him. Mikail Kordorkovsky, head of Russia’s largest oil company called […]

EDITORIAL: What I Said When My White Friend Asked for My Black Opinion on White Privilege

Instead of my usual Sunday morning poem, I’m reblogging this post in an effort to build bridges and to honor God with edification and truth through His love. I pray you will take the time to read this in full and – rather than reacting – allow the words to enter your heart so you […]
