The Kingdom

I got a brief glimpse of the Kingdom of God this weekend. It was fleeting to be sure, but solid nonetheless.

My church is helping a Muslim refugee family. They have many needs and among those is stable housing. We have gone about the process of securing that for them. The wife in this family was a doctor in her home country and she is going through the slow process of learning English and studying to take the tests necessary to become a doctor here. She told us on Saturday that she is, "... writing all of our deeds in a book ..." so that when she becomes a doctor she will rely upon our church to find needy patients that she can treat, pro bono.

Grace makes beauty out of ugly things.
