I’m Not Thankful For…

November 25, 2010

Dear Friends, Today is Thanksgiving and like many I have been thinking about all of the things that I am thankful for as I prepare to eat and fellowship with friends here in Portland. I am thankful for Portland, a city that has revived the soul in me, and taught me that the world is […]

I’ve been in Portland now for two and a half weeks. It’s not quite home yet, but then again I didn’t expect it to feel like home for a while. Don’t get me wrong, I love it here, but I knew that the same things I struggled with in Nashville I would undoubtedly struggle with […]
