Let the Walls Fall Down

berlin-wall-2     Last evening, as two women and I met in my church office, we were serenaded by choir rehearsal upstairs. There is nothing quite like counseling a loving, and somewhat troubled, couple while hearing “Let the Walls Fall Down” in the background.

     Let the walls fall down.

     I wrote my Delegate in the General Assembly this morning, asking him to support HB 1726, a bill that would allow Virginia companies to offer life insurance benefits to members, in addition to legal spouses and dependent children, of the families of their employees. Not an earth-shattering change, but change nonetheless.

     Let the walls fall down.

     I shared lunch with a dear friend yesterday, someone who is afraid at times of living the life God has for him. Me, too. We prayed to be less afraid.

     Let the walls fall down.

     Our President and other leaders are trying to thread their way through political minefields to repair our nation and our world.

      Let the walls fall down.

     What walls need to come down in your life?
