The Road Is Difficult

We were promised that in this life, we will have tribulations. But, what are tribulations? I don’t think that there is one answer to this question, because for each of us, tribulations can come in all different sizes and forms.

Dear Mr. Priest – a minute of your time, please.

I am sorry again that it has come to this, Mr. Priest, but you needed it…if you listen and put your wall of defense to the side for a minute. I love and respect you, but I must begin this conversation with you now, before it is too late. So, could I have a minute…

A teacher’s love – TEDx Talk

I came across this video and found it fascinating! The speaker mentioned agape love referencing C.S. Lewis as one of the most important aspects of teaching!
