No, I’m not giving up Social Media for Lent. My 2013 Lenten discipline is to give thanks to God for those who have helped me to grow into who God intends for me to be and become. See all of my 2013 Lenten Thanks here.
Every Fall our home eagerly awaits the arrival of our dear friend, “Grandma Kathryn” as she arrives for her annual Halloween visit. After meeting at Montreat Youth Conferences in 1992, over the past two decades Kathryn has blessed our lives by teaching us how to knit, to staying up for late night conversations about life to musing about the joys and pains of the church. One of those relationships that transcends geography, in person and online, her ability to speak truth and compassion, to express love and generosity and to live faithfully and passionately has been a gift to me and my family.
Today, I give thanks for our friend, Kathryn.
