There were 232 email addresses on the initial distribution list, but mine didn’t make the cut. Instead, I learned of my dear friend’s death only when the message was forwarded to me by one of the original 232.
So I guess it would be fair to ask, just how “dear” a friend was Fran?
Eight armored doors. That’s what stood between our incarcerated brothers and freedom…when we presented a Kairos Weekend to them at a supermax prison in 2012. Those eight doors, plus an ever-jangling assortment of handcuffs and leg-irons.
There’s something about being behind locked doors that seems to make the risen Lord more apparent to me.
