When you feel a radical gratitude for what you have, you end up wanting to go to radical lengths to share it. When you are radically grateful for being blessed, you want to be radically generous to the oppressed. (Ann Voskamp) I feel “radically” blessed because you angels have been “radically” generous!

Almost every day I reread a quote from Ann Voskamp that is my mantra for the day: You are where you are to help others where they are. This isn’t a Christian’s sideline hobby; compassion is our complete vocation. We do not just care about people; caring is our calling. That’s it!
To ‘do justice’ means to go to places where the fabric of shalom (peace the way God intended it to be) has broken down, where the weaker members of societies are falling through the fabric, and so repair it. Tim Keller (Generous Justice)

“Love needs to be the driving force behind everything that we do and say!” (Dr. Phil Hill) It is obvious that LOVE was the force behind our Kings Center Christmas Party! I’ve attached two pictures to this email to give you a peek! The children were overwhelmed with your gifts and ran up and down […]
While attending the Goldring Ceremony at Buffalo Trace last month I was reminded of a quote from Dr. Seuss’ LORAX, Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better, it’s NOT! I immediately thought of you angels! Your caring thoughts and support for the children of the Kings Center […]
I am so excited and thankful for you all! This is the first year that I have 3/4 of my angels up to date on their yearly contribution before the Fall (and I haven’t had to send out any letters!). WOW, I feel blessed! Thanks so much for your faithfulness. Again, as our children start […]
