So Paul took his stand in the open space at the Areopagus and laid it out for them: "I'm here to introduce you to this God.... He doesn't play hide-and-seek with us. He's not remote; he's near. We live and move in him, can't get away from him!" ~Acts 17
I know I've used this metaphor before, but today I fancied myself the Private Jenette Vasquez of yard work. Though instead of a flame thrower, I wielded a leaf blower. And instead of toothy and drooling aliens, I slayed moldy leaves. And, to the tell the truth, 15 minutes into the task, I actually would have preferred the flame thrower. And the aliens.
