The recent restrictions in air travel (due to the increased terrorist threat) happened two days after we purchased a ticket for my wife to fly from Denver to Phoenix. (We will both be there for my fall sabbatical from Denver Seminary.) It is very questionable whether Rebecca could handle a flight without any liquids, due to her medical problems. An extra long wait in the mold-hell of DIA is not high on her list of enjoyable activities either. So, she may need to drive out to Phoenix with me, which poses another (huge) set of problems.
So, on our walk tonight we came up with a simple solution. If anyone out there has a private jet and can fly Rebecca from Denver to Phoenix (for free, of course), please let us know as soon as possible.
All in all, "We walk by faith and not by sight." But what is the faithful thing to do on this one?
