"The foundation has been laid. The garden has been planted. The musical score is written. The principalities and powers that kept us in exile have been defeated; they need reminding of this, and we need reminding of it too, but it is a fact -- if it isn't, the cross was a failure. Our task is now to build the house, to tend the garden, to play the score. The human race has been in exile; exiled from the garden, shut out of the house, bombarded with noise instead of music. Our task is to announce in deed and word that the exile is over, to enact symbols that speak of healing and forgiveness, to act boldly in God's world in the power of the Spirit."

Bird's Bio

First of all, "Bird" is an old childhood nickname. Can't recall how I got it.

My real name is Eric Guel and I live in Waco, Texas. I'm a 37-year-old follower of Jesus, husband, and father of five gorgeous children.

My interests are literature, photojournalism, journalism, chess, theology, hobby farming, and history.
