Thanks so much for this Susan. It was a gift to serve beside you at Synod (literally in our Advisory Committee).
I especially appreciated your reference to Joshua and Caleb "believing and proclaiming the vision of God in such a way that redirected God’s people away from the fears that were clouding their vision," (vs. caving to flight or flight - guilty as charged).

Great stories! Moore's will be perfect for a Micah 6:8 sermon illustration next week - God's good timing :-) Even better because there are lots of butchers in our church. Thank-you!
