Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
- Colossians 3: 12-14

Sue just knew this was a bad idea. She was prepared to run out of there. These were the folks that had cheated her dad out of money, that had told her mom she was no longer welcome after she had the nerve to stand up to them that day. These are the folks who said they loved her as a child but were always telling her to be quiet. And there was Janice who had told her she would amount to nothing but be a drunkard like her father. Why was she going back there? Why?

Above all, love each other deeply because love covers a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever  gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. - 1 Peter 4: 8-10

Welcome to Fall. We know it’s Fall because of Labor Day, School starting, the Fall Festival is at the end of this month, because the geese are congregating (they started that in early August—you read the signs), and the equinox. Do you know what the Fall is really all about?

Count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus…For sin shall not be your master because you are not under the law, but under grace. — (Romans 6: 11,14)

"Do you know the Good News of Christ Jesus? You are saved and remade in Him.” That’s what the man at the fair said. It kinda got to Darcie. After all, she came to the fair to have some fun, let go of her cares, and just be with her friends. But that got to her. All this religion stuff was like her grandma making her go to church and sitting there in the heat with a boring sermon and slow music. It was not at all like the fair! Especially the midway with its lights and screams and nauseating fun. Was it all real?
