Dr. Dave is so grateful to live in a country with liberty that allows him to express his life of faith and thoughts freely. God has surely blessed the United States of America with an open heart to live into the calling of “Give me your tired and poor,” which is an inscription on the Statue of Liberty. In the book of Matthew 22:39, it was written to “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” This should be the narrative of the Elastic Minds!
