In The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Eustace becomes a dragon and is about to be left on the island because he cannot travel with the rest of the Dawn Treader 's crew. In that moment of despair, Aslan meets him and pulls the dragon-skin away rescuing Eustace from himself. I love that part of C.S. Lewis ' theology.

School is starting to become worshipful again. My youth ministry is in this season of life therapeutic. Window washing (aka work) is different than expected but not to bad. I had a conversation with a Buddhist store owner that I wash windows for. Heartbreaking. I 'm working and striving to make Christ the greatest and fulfill the Great Commission as I continue in these blessed years of my life.

Prayer request:
For me to get to a place with my students
