Not To Speak Is To Speak

How many of us? With a voice. Either in verbs stated or body language offered. Find this statement from Dietrich Bonhoeffer to have full value?

I hope most of us nod in affirmation and act through word and deed.

Thanks, Joanne Brown, for posting this on your Facebook. Powerful and relevant. Especially in this day when the political realities find people rushing the stage of a speaker…not to affirm but to have a muting impact.

May that muting not be successful.

Sure, there are positions that we could not disagree with more. That’s not my point. My point is for self-examination, to consider within our very own self…what do we believe…and how is the ordering of our life not muting?

It’s about justice.

From Bonhoeffer, who literally gave his life to defeat a world turned maniacal.

About Mark H Miller

Diane and I live in Leander, Texas. This past June 17, 2015 I celebrated the 49th anniversary of my ordination. We returned to Texas after three years in Washington, during which I served as interim minister in Bellevue/Eastgate and Mercer Island. Am planning to begin a 5th novel that will have my protagonist, Tricia Gleason, serve a year in licensed ministry in Snoqualmie, Washington. The novel, "The Lemon Drop Didn't Melt," will find Tricia wrestling with ministry challenges. None of which more daunting than someone wanting her breathing to stop. All the published novels are available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle under Mark Henry Miller. A primary goal in our return to Texas is to make sure grandchildren get lots of attention--here and in Chicago and Washington, D.C. Traveling is definitely an activity that will not slow down. With that, of course, fishing will happen. To that the t-shirt is apt, "I fish; therefore I am." In addition to novels, the book of Blogs, "Voice Of My Heart," is also available on Amazon.
