Glimpses of the Divine in the Mundane

My name is Krystalynn Martin and I am someone who savagely seeks for truth, authenticity, justice, mercy, and a real-life picture of Love that can be seen in the flesh and blood canisters we call human beings.  I choose to fight against the apathy that desires to steal our joy, our authenticity, and the miracle of living in the present.  I am a woman, a sister, a wife, a daughter, a friend, an athlete, a teacher, a mother, a teacher and a minister.  I am unique, passionate, playful, down-to-earth, analytical, sarcastic, proactive, creative, spiritual, open-minded, and ever-growing.  I believe there are mysteries we will always have, and as we continue to question and dialogue those mysteries, perhaps we see glances into the answers that await.  Read on and comment back.  May this be a place where all our experiences and questions can be shared with authentic reverence and an open mind.

    Krystalynn, thanks for being you and letting you be available to me. Thanks for seeking God and sharing what you find with me. Thanks for being a neighbor to your world and to me. May God strengthen you for your ministry on this Sabbath day.

    Came across your blog. I am a believer in legit faith, and I love your thoughtful 3 part presentation on “woman’s ordination.” That is the loving, patient, well researched sort of response we need in our church.

    I am brought to tears by the serendipitous stumbling upon this place you have created…legitfaith. I was looking for some information about the whereabouts of San Andres village on the Amazon in Peru, where you now are with my beautiful son Sam, and the youth from Rio Lindo Academy. I started reading the blogs on the site, completely connecting with your writings in a most profound way. As I read on…there was the picture of you with that precious little girl, Mierta! You are such a sweet blessing to the students and staff at Rio,and to the world- and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your commitment to what it means to be a follower of Christ in this crazy world.
    May the Peace and Joy of Christ be yours always,
    Jaynie Smith

  4. Please Excuse the Smoke is stunningly beautiful. Krystalynn, please! Consider allowing the Chico Area Interfaith Council to use your poem for the Community Interfaith Memorial Service on February 8, 2018. It is being held at the grand re-opening of the Paradise Performing Arts Center. We are having a celebration of lives, all 86 lives. We will have a mult-faith service that will promote healing and hope. We will have prayer, song, silence and your poem would be perfect. Even more perfect would be you coming home to read it!
    So blessed to have stumbled across this gift,
    Kristina Leser Carter, Chico Area Interfaith Council President
