Writing our own memorials

Last Friday, I said goodbye to Marty Hager for the last time. Julie and I sat on the front row of the church along with the rest of our family to let the reality of his death squeeze through the denial everyone faces at times like these.

Are there self-fulfilling prophecies?

When our family finally got settled in at my first church in Florida, I received a call to visit a young man recently incarcerated for auto theft.
