If is one of my favorite poems of all time. It paints a picture of a man of confidence and humility, a practical man and a dreamer, who can talk with crowds and walk with kings, keeping both his virtue and “the common touch.” He isĀ a man who perseveres, who acts out of wisdom, but is willing to take risks. This is a picture I want to learn from, and that I hope you can learn from as well.



This one is just a short meditation on the Lord’s Supper. This sacrament (or ordinance) is a simple act that packs a lot of meaning. In it we are invited to partake in the body and blood of our savior, as a reminder of who he is and what he has done for us. One of the names for this ceremony is “the eucharist,” which comes from a Greek word meaningĀ “thanksgiving.”
