    Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Isaiah 1:18

  2. Charles Cameron Says:

    Indeed, it is the LORD who invites us to reason together, and reasoning together with our fellow mortals is something of a lesser sort.

  3. Jim Gant Says:

    Charles, A prayer for you and all you hold dear.

    My country is not my King.
    But, oh!
    I pray for thee.

    Yes, yes. Let’s take a knee and reason – Together.
    Thanks for everything.

  4. Charles Cameron Says:

    Very good to hear from you, Jim. What part of the world are you in these days? If I had nation-sized compassion, I’d surely weep for the current condition of these much loved States. As it is, I’m feeling compassion for, and witnessing great compassion from, those all around me. What can I say? The terrible is nothing terrible, as it approaches. May I reciprocate your prayers to the letter?

    Hi, Charles,

    I’ve been thinking of you. Jim’s prayer is very beautiful.

    Do you know Jim’s story, Sally? It’s told in American Spartan: The Promise, the Mission, and the Betrayal –I can’t get the URL function to work here, but it’s available on Amazon and no doubt elsewhere.

  7. Sally Benzon Says:

    Ahh! Now I know why Jim’s name sounded familiar. Courageous man.
