The Kingdom of Heaven is like a Game of Cricket

Pock! The scraggly old tennis ball meets a precisely swung cricket bat and skids across the pavement leaving behind it a green trail of dust. “Here,” says my new friend grinning through his mustache. “Now you try.” “Er… I don’t know, Kishore. I guess so.” I hesitantly take the bat and trudge up to the…

But I wrote that title because of my experiences working with low-income African American children in Waco’s inner city schools for the last half-a-decade, most recently as a first grade teacher.

My Story, Part 2

A couple weeks ago, I wrote a post describing how the justice of God had a large hand in my conversion to Christianity. That was the first of several posts I would like to make recounting this journey I’ve been on with the Lord in learning about His justice. I plan on posting every other…
