WHEN SOMEONE IS SCRUTINIZING ME. Lately, I have received several anonymous e-mails and posts (which I remove) on this blog. The nature of these caustic communiques indicate that I am being scrutinized spiritually and professionally. If I am being measured, judged, and ready to be condemned for my freedom in Christ that doesn't square with another's or an ideology's litmus tests, so be it. I have nothing to hide, nothing to fear, nothing to defend. Personal attacks will only heighten and deepen the grace which embraces me and by which I live and lead. Still, I invite my anonymous critic into disclosure and to a table of peace, understanding, and dialogue. This is Jesus' way.

  1. I don't know who is sending you anonymous comments . . . but I read your blog nearly everyday. I don't know you, but your comments, your grace notes, your letters to the president stand in the faithful tradition of all Biblical Prophets.

    I am thankful for your words and work.

    God's peace to you today.

  2. I also try to keep up on your journal. Mostly because you often say things that I don’t always agree with, one gets complacent in his view if never challenged. Hope anonymous gathers the courage to accept your offer.
