Looking at God's World
I’m Ferrell Foster, the husband of Trese, the father of six and the grandfather of five.
It’s easy for some people to say what they do, but my place in this world is a bit more complicated. I’m sort of a minister, but not of a church; sort of a writer, but not regularly in print; sort of a manager, but that sounds more boring than it is. And I actually have three titles at work, but here’s the one that really describes my work — Director of Ethics and Justice for the Christian Life Commission.
Most importantly, I simply want to be known as a follower of Christ. Not that I follow Him all that well, but I’m trying to head in the same basic direction He’s trying to lead. And, to me, following Christ means living a life of love, compassion, and forgiveness. Not easy, and when you start getting more of it right you find there are some Christians who are bit uneasy with all of that love, compassion, and forgiveness.
So, life is tricky, like it’s always been.
