It has been, to say the least, an interesting week.

My last several posts were very different from one another, of course - they dealt with significantly different topics. But in a lot of ways, there was overlap. There always is. At the heart of every situation, every issue that we deal with, is one fundamental reality. We serve Christ. We seek His glory. We honor Him in all.

I have spent time talking in considerably more detail this past week with both outsiders completely uninvolved in the situation - people who know none of those involved - and with those most directly involved. My parents have had much good counsel. I wish I had more time to talk to them, honestly. They're smart people. In the midst of that and a lot of prayer, I've come to certain conclusions.

First, the leadership in the BSU is absolutely trustworthy. They're human, but they are Godly men following God. Imperfect, of course, and I have no idea whether they've made any significant mistakes in their handling of this situation. Ultimately, it doesn't matter, because God is bigger than any they might have made. They are following Christ; and He is good and sovereign.

I'm hanging out with Jaimie, now, and she's also amazing. More thoughts, later.

  1. i'm very sorry you've had to go through all of this. it triggered memories that i cannot recall all of, but it seems there were changes in the leadership when i was in the BSU, too, in college.

    you're parents are very smart and very wise; you are eternally blessed :)

    hi to Jaimie!

  2. I know the leadership changes have been very unsettling for you and the others, but I'm glad the Lord is bringing clarity for you regarding the circumstance.
    You are so correct in the realization that the people are prone to failings, but God is infallible. Thankfully.

    Say hi to Miss Amazing for us. ;)
    I think that is how we will have to greet her when we finally meet her.
