CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
No Reserve, No Retreat, No Regrets.
The words of Borden of Yale, a wealthy heir who gave up everything in order to reach the Islamic world. He passed away prematurely at the age of 25 from cerebral meningitis while studying Arabic in Egypt.
In our era of rampant consumerism the goals in life seem to be to collect as many things along our way in life. Borden already had everything and gave it all up. As Jesus says: who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it. (Matthew 13:46)
A short synopsis of his life can be found here:
Prayers for Little Johns Father on the renal transplant list. El Bano and his fiancé returns from Tanzania on Monday.
Berm is a shining jewel in F3 Memphis. Thanks to Bailout and Lipton for keeping an eye on the six. Gus looked as though the highlight of the day was the opportunity to name Jake Brake.
See Slack. Lots going on.
