Thoughtful Boldness

Thoughtful Boldness on God's Love and Grace

What is your purpose in life?


“My purpose in life is live life fully alive in body, mind and spirit and to help others do the same.”
–Rev. Bill Freeman

Bill Freeman is a United Church of Christ pastor that I met today.  He is a man who believes that you should walk your talk.  One of his proudest moments was being arrested for an act of Civil Disobedience when he was advocating in Holland, Michigan for local ordinances to protect LGBT people from losing their jobs or being kicked out of their apartments because of their sexual orientation.

This is day 8 of my Lenten Experience Experiment.  I love to hear people’s stories; and while my question is often an opening for someone to tell you their story, just as often it shuts down the conversation completely.
