a gift outside, inside, upside down:
- gorgeous fuchsia flowers outside on a rhododendron bush
- a sister in Christ who modeled true hospitality, focusing not on perfection or attempting to impress, but on welcome and fellowship.
- the upside down kingdom of God. His order is the first are last and the last first (Matthew 20:16), the servant is great (Matthew 20:26), the rejected stone is the chief cornerstone (Matthew 21:42), and the foolish and weak shame the wise and the strong (1 Corinthians 1:27).
