A Prophetic Word (December 1983) From my perch in the little café on the town square, Piata Unirii, I watch people shuffle past clutching cheap burlap carry-bags, probably hoping to find bread in the shops. I was there as instructed on the itinerary I had memorized and then flushed down…

I went for a run on a nice spring day. An hour later I found myself in a place and situation I really did not want to be in. While on my run, I suddenly had a severe allergic reaction and within minutes I was on the ground in distress.…
