I've been thinking about trust...

In my three previous blogs in this series I have been describing elements of a change process I have identified in my own life as transformation alchemy. Transformation alchemy includes INSPIRATION + KNOWLEDGE + WONDER which God uses to move me along a path toward sanctification. Sanctification is God's term for the incremental changes He makes in me as He changes me to be more like His son, Jesus Christ.

I've been thinking about training...

My dad grew up on a farm in Iowa. He tinkered and fixed all his life and he did it in a very thorough way. I remember standing next to him in our garage. Little me, dwarfed by his size and strength, focusing on the job in front of me because he was instructing me in hammering a nail. I remember he carefully trained me in the art of pounding - keeping the nail straight all the way into the board - and in the process patiently endured my crooked, miserable attempts.
