What We’re Here For

While John and Marti are on retreat, our good friend, Dave Roper will be providing our Catches each day. For more on Dave’s works, click here.


Carolyn and I have been watching a British television series about a stolid, plainspoken Chief Inspector and his brash, young assistant who protect and serve a small village in Northumberland. It’s a murder mystery set in 1964 with some significant asides about moral integrity.

In one scene an elderly couple, who own a small pig farm, agree to take in a seriously disturbed, homeless teenager. When asked how they could accept this challenge at their age and with their meagre resources the old man quietly replied, “It’s what we’re here for.”

Love and heart-kindness. It’s what we’re here for.

What are you here for?
