Fingerprints: Humility and humanity
In humility, I have started getting out the door to run again. There has been a hurdle of self-consciousness standing in the way because it’s a little tough to blend in here. I have had to get past the fact that most eyes turn toward that white woman running by.
Mead Minutes: Stepping out in faith
Greetings from the Great Rift Valley in Kijabe, Kenya!! It has been a loooong time since I have been able to write those words.
No right to be angry
Isn’t this one of the ways the Devil likes to play with us though? He inflates our egos, our sense of self worth, and our pride to unrealistic standards. He feeds us with false compliments, and, after awhile, we can start to believe them, to believe we deserve more and more.

Dr. Mead describes a special week, personally, professionally, and spiritually!
Keeping the gospel central in all life
“But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel…” Galatians 2:11-19 No one except Paul had his eyes open at this, and so it was his duty to reprove Peter and his followers for swerving from the truth of the Gospel. Both Paul and Peter need to be […]

Mead Minutes: Merry Christmas!
Sometimes amidst the glitter and noise, the reason we celebrate is lost. Christmas should be a season of “awe and wonder.” When Christ was born, there were no Christmas sales going on.
