Toward a Farm


Sam leaned over and said, “Dad, do you want to see the video I made?”

As I watched and read his words, I couldn’t stop the tears of joy. Behind these pictures and sentences are a deep understanding within Sam. He gets it. He knows where we are headed. He understands the importance. He sees the significance. He sees the future. 

Sam understands this journey is not just about us. Not an escape from routine or responsibility, but a calling. A sent life toward a different set of daily practices. A new liturgy leading our formation. A breaking of the imposed powers of anxiety and acquisition. A release of the held powers of competition and performance. A reoreintating toward faithfulness. A salvation.  

I asked Sam if he wanted to continue telling our story. He does. So we will be launching a new website for our new story-teller. Give us a week or so to get it up and running…and then follow along.

    Great Grandpa Ash would love this and you would have loved him and his farm. Is there a dugout canoe in the making to float the lake?
