Someone replied to this newsletter about the fear of living again. I really understand that fear. I made a list of all the really difficult multi-year events we went through. Most of them began in July/August, so it is no wonder that be October I have a feeling of impending doom. I remembered a poem by Dr Kent M. Keith that is often mis-quoted as a poem “Anyway”, it is actually titled the “Paradoxical Commandments”. I know that what I do is not going to work the way I expect. I trust that God will use it for good. So I go anyway. This is what I see embodied in Jesus teaching. Here is a link to the "Paradoxical Commandments" https://www.paradoxicalcommandments.com/
