Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

What is the meaning of life?

Dave Canovas This is a question that could be borne out of disappointment, grief, depression or even mere boredom. Whichever it is, I do not welcome it. It nags and gets me into deep thought. Deep thinking, I have come to understand, tends to be more of a liability for me than an asset.…

Values in action

Martha, Mary and the caterpillar room
