God's Love

I have given them the glory you gave to me.  That they may be one as we are one.  With me in them and you in me, may they be so perfected in unity that the world will recognize that it was you who sent me and that you have loved them as you have loved me. 
(John 17:22-23 New Jerusalem Bible)

"While praying over those remarkable words, I came to the inescapable conclusion that the degree of Abba's love for me is in direct proportion to His love for Jesus.  For example, I can love the mailman with twenty percent and my best friend with ninety percent.  But with God, there is no division, no more and no less.  God loves me as much as He loves Jesus.  Wow!"

From the book The furious longing of God by Brennan Manning.

Hi Kevin and Benay

Just wanted to share about a New Zealand christian singer called Brooke Fraser, she is beautiful inside and out and her voice is wonderful. She does a lot of work in Rwanda, and you can find her music and a couple of interviews on youtube, about her time there. I thought Bronwyn might like it :)

Hope all is well

Oh I recomment the song "Albertine" which is about Rwanda. Another one of my favorites is called C S Lewis Song. Hope you guys enjoy it.

Roberta,

We always love hearing from you.

I shared your comments with Bronwyn and she went right to youtube to check it out. Thanks for sharing that with her.

She then used your comments and suggestions and made a new blog on her website. Go check it out when you have a minute.

Hope you and your family are doing well.

Kevin

Hi Kevin

I am glad she liked it :) Just thought she would get even more inspired to go and do what God is calling her to do, I think Brooke Fraser has that effect on people :)

Gob Bless
