Franklin Graham appears to distance himself from Trump remarks on Charlottesville

Just days after coming to President Donald Trump’s defense in the wake of Charlottesville, Franklin Graham sent out a new Facebook post Thursday in which he appeared to distance himself from the embattled president’s continued attempts to say blame for the violence in Charlottesville should be shared by white supremacists and by those who showed up to protest their presence in the university town.

Do you have enough faith to tell the truth?

In the present day, with things as they are in our society, I heard someone say recently that the truth was “in need of pastoral care.” What she meant is that the idea of truth and the telling of it needed the support of a compassionate presence, a little non-anxious tenderness. Truth is in need of devoted attention.

Through our faith, we can find strength in offering care to our parents

Recently, I visited family in Palestine. My mother-in-law has a few physical issues, but dementia has really taken its toll. She recognizes those she sees regularly, but has a hard time remembering others. She continuously introduces herself to my children and me, but extraordinarily, she remembers that we speak English and she uses the few English words she knows when talking to us.
