Farris particularly enjoys John 17.  There Jesus describes His unity with us believers and compares it to His unity with the Father.  Our marriage (Ruth and Farris) is ordained by God to be that same picture.  We work daily to overcome our individualism.  It is interesting that our individual talents and gifts from God are not at issue...those blessings to our flesh nature can flow freely and were ordained when we were created; at issue is our self-expression wherein, as subjects in the Kingdom, we want more for God to express Himself through us instead of us expressing our own perspectives, as if they are important.  Our culture teaches individualism and when somebody is particularly good and successful, we make them into idols or heroes.  I pray that we spend more time listening to God instead of the culture.
