The Schmelzenbach hutch
The Schmelzenbach hutch

You’ve heard the expression, “If walls could talk.” I think the same thing when I see old furniture.

This week, we’ve been moving house. As part of the furniture shuffle here at the complex where we live, we acquired use of this beautiful hutch. According to the retired missionary who enjoyed it for many years, it belonged to the Schmelzenbachs when they served in Swaziland. Perhaps someone reading this note recognizes this beautiful antique and can tell us more about it?

From Amy’s reading

“The first question is always, ‘What’s the mission?’ Ask yourself what you’d like to achieve, not day-to-day but your overarching goal. Then assess and analyze your resources.” – Rudy Guiliani, in Leadership (London: Time Warner paperbacks, 2002), 417.

From Greg’s blog, “Theology in Overalls” (archives)

“Jesus was once asked to sum up all the Law and the Prophets, the heart of the message of what Christians now call the Old Testament. He answered by saying that we should love God and love our neighbor (Mark 12:28-34). These are the two Great Commandments, and they are the very marrow of what it means to be a Christlike disciple.”
