A detour through Death Valley had seemed like such a brilliant idea earlier in the day. Nevertheless, we pressed on down the dusty road, paying little heed to the absence of other travelers either coming or going en route: Defeated, we began driving back the way we came, when suddenly we spotted a weathered trail winding away towards the valley.
And so we faced a choice: Or, armed with out scant resources namely, a bag of Cheetos and no phone signalshould we veer left and risk the pot-holed, unmarked track?

This is a truth that our dearly missed brother Nabeel Qureshi understood and lived by.
And yet, weaving all of it together was our astonishing God, the one who bends down to the dust and breathes into it his very own breath, the breath of life. Another year where the coming of the Christ child led people out of darkness and into the light of life. I am making all things new.
