Who Are We
We should be jealous. . . for the honour of His name – troubled when it remains unknown, hurt when it is ignored, indignant when it is blasphemed. And all the time anxious and determined that it shall be given the honour and glory which are due to it.” John Stott

Quick trip to NC
I remember as a kid playing baseball with my friends and there being times when we needed an extra player and so, my sister, Lauren, would play with us. Her lack of interest for baseball in general was demonstrated by how she would regularly call "time out" right before she was going to be tagged out. As a kid, that frustrated me to no end. As an adult, I realize the only reason she played was because of me. We needed an extra player.
I recently flew into NC to surprise my sister at her farewell party. This past school year, she quit her job as a librarian at an elementary school and is planning on going to schools around the world that need help setting up a library. Her first stop will be Rwanda and she leaves next month.
In actuality, Lauren will be doing what she has always done, think about others more than she thinks about herself. I was very thankful to be able to be at Lauren's farewell party and wanted to tell her then what I'm writing here (but I lost my voice when I was there). Lauren, thanks for being a great sister. And yes, I wasn't paying much attention to how you always cared more about others than yourself when we were kids, but I am now.
