My friend, JR Woodward, who is the pastor of Kairos Los Angeles and lives just down the road from me in Hollywood, has an incredible blog called Dream Awakener, which if you haven't seen, you really need to check out.

To me, John and Aileen embody the good news.
Read the whole thing here and join in the conversation in the comments at JR's blog.
