us and to be invited into everything about us. This is why one of the names of
God, Emmanuel, means, “God with us.” He wants to be with us, intimately
involved in our lives. He wants us to know His voice and follow Him.

Christopher Rosset, the son of André and brother of Cynthia had a terrible
accident on November 5th when he fell from the fifth floor balcony
of the school where he is the headmaster in Villefranche-sur-mer, Nice, France.
They are the family who have been in negotiation (for over a year) to buy Kilcreggan
House. At the end of November, André paid for Nancy and I to go over to pray
for Christopher and to
be a strength to the family. Please pray that
Christopher will make a speedy and total recovery from his accident.
While in Nice, André introduced us to an art collector whose wife had been the

So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then
you are really and unquestionably free. (John 8:36).
And just in case you didn't understand ...
Jesus said, “I tell you most solemnly that anyone who
chooses a life of sin is trapped in a dead-end life and is, in fact, a slave. A
slave is a transient, who can’t come and go at will. The Son, though, has an established
position, the run of the house. So if the Son sets you free, you are free
through and through...”
Free to love as He loves. To be guided by His
Holy Spirit as He is. Free to be a child of God ...
