Sometimes I feel that my posts here are one move too far from giving comforting care for the soul—one step too far on the side of afflicting instead of comforting; that is, afflicting the comfortable instead of comforting the afflicted.  

And then I think, but we are way too much in love with our comfort.

You decide that.

Anyway, today I share the voice of Ken Sehested in North Carolina, my favorite Baptist, whom I have known as a fellow peaceworker and counted as a friend for more than 40 years.   

Much, probably most, that is possible is not easy.
