Love In Many Languages

May 10, 2016 @ 05:10 pm by Jim Kast-Keat

"I want people open their imaginations to look for, listen for God talking in these different spaces but also to see themselves cast in the role of translators.

You are the one that is called to do this work."

God, from A to Z

March 29, 2016 @ 05:19 pm by Jim Kast-Keat

"When acts of terror happen in the world it's easy for me to tend to despair, it's easy to sit in that place of 'here's another attack.'

Not protection that keeps us from hurting but protection that helps us to get up and keep going."
