All you DTS folks will have recently received your summer edition of Kindred Spirit. Some of you strangers and/or folks down in Baton Rouge might not receive it at all, but you should. The newest issue looks very summery--bright blue skies, deep greens and blues of the pool water and the little boy's swim trunks, that same boy's blond head reflecting the sun.
The cheerful scene stands in contrast to the boy's expression, one of worry and distrust as he reaches out to his father in the pool. "No way!" his frown says. "I'm not jumping. You have to come get me." But the back cover shows the delight and joy that comes after trusting that his father will catch him, as they splash and romp together in the water.
"Deep Faith" is the theme of the issue. The articles are well worth your perusal, highlighting the actions we should be taking to reflect our faith in a powerful, loving, saving God. Feeding the poor, helping the homeless, worshipping in the midst of injustice...take some time to read through the online articles if you don't receive a hard copy.
For those of you who do/did receive a copy, take a good look at the boy and his father on the front and back covers. Yes, those are my guys--hubby John and son Jack. Such starring roles come to those whom the editor knows are the right age and size, not to mention adorable :).
