Words on Faith: Stump the Minister

Published in Frederick News Post on October 6, 2018

even put others in the way. Because it

makes what is necessary seem monumental.

It makes what is needed seem uncrossable.

Yet when we stumble over the line, or are

loved over the line, or, in our exhaustion,

fall beyond our pain, what we feared
