Each month as I do research while gathering ideas for the featured “Dream Portrait”, I enter a wonderful maze of inspiration. The individuals that have been chosen as candidates for Durham Dreams are such incredible human beings, giving so much of themselves in service to their community. This month’s journey into the stories of the “amazing grace” surrounding the Durham Rescue Mission and it’s founders Ernie and Gail Mills has been deeply moving. Reverend Mills’ mission and message has not only been extraordinarily effective, but also extremely contagious. The Durham Rescue Mission draws volunteers of all ages, as seen in this video clip. Project Daily Bread is something I know you’ll love hearing about.
Defining an idea:
Sometimes I get a lot of insight into an idea simply by looking up the definitions of relevant words. In beginning this "Dream Portrait" of the Durham Rescue Mission, I wanted to focus on the idea of rescuing.
Rescue: the recovery or preservation from loss or danger.
