Welcome to RandyGreenwald.com, a place where I, Randy Greenwald, reflect on life with an eye toward ‘the way things are supposed to be.’
I’m glad you have come along to join in this conversation.
As a pastor (though I’m other things besides) I’m drawn to author Alan Paton’s description of his fictional Zulu priest Stephen Kumalo:
“…he was a parson, sober and rather dull no doubt,
and his hair was turning white….”
– Alan Paton, Cry, the Beloved Country
Rev. Kumalo was a man of decency and piety, and was neither dull nor given to glum sobriety. He lived in a broken world and through many small acts of courage and kindness, he brought God’s kingdom near.
I hope the posts and conversation on this site will encourage us to do the same.
