CHRIST IN WINTER: Reflections on Faith from a Place of Winter for the Years of Winter… ©
John Wesley said that our goal is to be made perfect in love. It is referred to as his “doctrine of Christian perfection.”
Indeed, candidates for ministry in the United Methodist Church are still asked, “Do you expect to be made perfect in love in this life?” The only correct answer is “Yes,” regardless of how much the evidence argues against it.
Christian perfection, I think, is a matter of finally recognizing how perfectly God waits for us, waits for us to discover and acknowledge the perfection in love that is God.

The “place of winter” mentioned in the title line is Iron Mountain, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, where life is defined by winter even in the summer! [This phrase is explained in the post for March 20, 2014.]
I have also started an author blog, about writing, in preparation for the publication, by Black Opal Books, of my novel, VETS, in 2015. http://johnrobertmcfarland-author.blogspot.com/
