Trust? That Depends.

Trust . . . it’s a delicate issue. It’s been said:

I don’t think you’d be excited to pick a fight you already knew you would lose. That would be especially true if someone else told you to pick that fight.

Truth AND Love

Recently, a news story grabbed my attention . . . and broke my heart.  John Gibson, a 56-year-old pastor and professor at the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary was found dead on August 24, 2015.  Mr. Gibson took his own life because his name was one of the 30 million names leaked by hackers of Ashley Madison, the website created for people seeking extramarital affairs.  Heart broken, Christi (the widow of John Gibson) stated, “What we know about him is that he poured his life into other people, READ MORE
