Riding the Storm Out

Riding the storm out – Shingles from a nearby construction site sail through the air as high winds and driving, torrential rains hit Beardstown last Thursday afternoon.  Wind gusts rocked the city’s River Look platform from which this photo was taken, and sent water splashing high against the city’s floodwall.  (Photo by David V.

“Jesus did not simply die to save us from our sins; Jesus lived to save us from our sins. His life and teaching show us the way to liberation.” (Rachel Held Evans, Inspired, p. 155)
