This is for my son and for other guys who will be new dads this year
Getting to know my new grandson "Ike" Thorp

Checking my passion on a Friday morning in mid-Michigan

I can see that the sun's coming up outside our living room window as I listen to this video from Francis Chan.  He talks about the Apostle Paul and the passion he showed for other people in what he wrote, especially Romans 9.  He talks about the unceasing anguish he has for the salvation of others.

This is grist for my thoughts as we prepare for our trip outside "the compound."
