My father has spent his career in public service, as a volunteer firefighter and EMT, as a high school teacher, and as a member of the Board of Supervisors in my home county. Over the course of the pandemic, he has begun a series of “Front Porch Posts” that he shares with his Facebook friends, as a new way to serve those around him, at a distance.

I share one of them today with you, our Redeemer friends, who we love and miss dearly, because as always, my father has a way of speaking the truth that rattled my heart. So, as my Daddy says, “Resolve to provide kindness, to show love, and to spread God’s love and mercy to others. Peace, my friends.”
