Dear Jen Hatmaker,

I have long admired you- your heart for the orphan, your humorous-without-being-demeaning writing… but I mostly admire your big earrings.  I have watched you tackle hard subjects, and do so with fairness.

Call it coincidence, if you choose, but when we laid plans for my visit Down Under, no one knew that it would coincide with one of the…
