Letter to Kevin,

Yesterday tested our friendship, tested our character, tested our sense of brotherhood. I hope in the next 100 years of our lives, we don't experience that kind of raw emotion, but I'm probably wrong about that. But we survived. Not only did we survive, we learned a lot about the good and the bad within us and we're still standing. Remember the line from Fight Club, "What can you really know about a man until you've seen him in a fight?" Well, what you learn is the depravity and the beauty. We have a mix of both, but when push comes to shove, we call out the beauty (the Kingdom stuff) in one another. So, we're still standing. No, check that. We're running to the front of the battle line . . .

I'm learning now that we are making some other kingdom nervous. The enemy is showing its ugly face and delivering some blows and they are painful. But here's the deal, we're getting back up. Do you hear that, you slimy piece of crap? Nobody is down, nobody is out, nobody is alone. The fellowship is strong and battle makes us stronger. Do you really want a fight out in the open where the light reveals the absurdity of your lies and the irrationality of your accusations? Are you sure you want a piece of a Kingdom Community that seeks to serve first before being served? Are you sure that you want to awaken the people of the Ressurrection? Because we hear you loud and clear and sorry that we don't cower into a corner, its just not our nature. We take after our King and He seems rather confident. His orders are clear. No retreat, no surrender, no fear, no hestitancy. You want a fight? You got one big boy. Though we walk thru the valley of the shadow of death, we will fear no evil, for He is with us. Sound the alarm, its on and we're showing up. Kingdom of God, unite, war is upon us.
