Baby Milly

18 10 2007

I invite your prayers for a very sick baby called Milly.  I heard about Milly through Jessica Knott, one of the fine Bible Society staff in the UK.  Jessica states,

Milly has a bowel disease which means she cannot ‘eat’ and until they can sort that out and remove all the diseased bowel (which seems to be growing) they cannot make her better. She has had 5 operations and has a colostomy (stoma) bag which isn’t working. Basically her bowl is leaking into her body.

So I invite your prayers for Milly.

 Dear Lord,  we lift up to you Milly.  May you  bring healing. Amen

Interesting people interviews: Helen Thompson

12 10 2007

From time to time I will interview interesting people. helen-thompson.jpgThe first is Helen Thompson, a social media guru with some fabulous things to say.

MB: Tell us a little about yourself.

HT: I’m a cradle Episcopalian in the Diocese of Virginia, living in the northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in the U.S. I had a break with faith in my teens that lasted until I was 32, and I’ll talk more about that in a moment. But first, a little more about the rest of me–professionally, I am a writer, on one shoe, and a social media strategist, on the other. Read the rest of this entry »
