I was listening for a sound–a sound a friend had told me I’d never hear–the ringing bells of Santa’s sleigh. (from The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg)

As Jon, Benjamin, and I travelled through northern Missouri, we saw a train blast through the snow that was coming in sideways like StarWars stars and I thought of the Polar Express. I thought about one of my favorite themes in literature and in life: choosing to believe. And that led me to this quote about listening even when you don’t think you’ll hear what you’re listening for. Sometimes listening for God’s voice is like this. Sometimes you have to choose to believe.
