my favorite pen pal.

"Sometimes I think of life as a big wagon wheel with many spokes. In the middle is the hub. Often in ministry [teaching], it looks like we are running around the rim trying to reach everybody. But God says, "Start in the hub; live in the hub. Then you will be connected with all the spokes, and you won't have to run so fast."
-Henri Nouwen
