Thinx 44: The Coalface

Where is the coal-face? When I'm praying, interceding for others, that's the coal-face. Whatever battles are fought in the world, they are fought first in prayer. Wherever I am praying, that is the coal-face.

I could be back serving as a missionary in PNG or Pakistan and yet be far from the place there God wants me to be; though it may appear to be for service, sometimes a change of location may be for the purpose of escape.

Still in my head and heart at this stage. Yes, it's been a while, with my technical blog seeing more activity.

I've been reading Erasmus, so something will likely come out of that. There's an email exchange I had recently to be turned into an entry. And I was thinking of putting up some of the meditations from my time in Pakistan.

I haven't forgotten about BruceThinx at all.
