    Deann, I am so very sorry for the loss of your precious grandmother. I understand how this loss feels, as I still sigh at the memory of the wonderful gift of God that my own grandma was…my prayers are with you and your beautiful family. May her soul be radiant in the light of Christ’s glory.

    Brother Geoff,6 months ago I would have asueccd you of living in an overly sensitive and panic stricken spirit of fear. I was so tired of hearing people link Obama to the antichrist or accuse him of being a covert Muslim terrorist. The emails that circulated during elections slandering him was certainly less than Christian. However, today I must admit we as followers of Jesus who are also American find ourselves in uncharted water. I would not claim to be afraid of the future, I would however affirm your feeling of disbelief. I find myself shocked as well and wondering what to do. His agenda, along with the leaders he surronds himself with speak extensivly about his direction and worldview.P.S. If the health care reform bill passes and tax dollars begin paying for abortions (as I understand in its current form will), do I continue to pay taxes or do I refuse to fund that agenda and submit to my punishment? I throw that it in as it has been my question to ponder for the last three days.Good post. I identify with it.Zach
