Your Breath in Me - Ray Majoran
    Ray Majoran - Your Breath in Me

    Hello. If you were dying and you had one last chance to talk with the people that matter most to you, what would you say? If everything was on the line, and nothing was left on the table, what wisdom would you impart?

    Back in 2007, professor Randy Pausch of Carnegie Mellon University learned that he was dying from pancreatic cancer. Taking on a tradition held by academics, he delivered “one last lecture” to a group of about 400 colleagues and students.

    My name is Ray Majoran, and this website (featuring my books, commentary, and photography) is my last lecture. May you be encouraged, strengthened, inspired, and challenged by it.

    My Case for God. My Case for Christ.

    If I say, "I will not mention him, or speak any more in his name," there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot. — Jeremiah 20:9 (ESV)

    My Life. My Journey.

    But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. This is why it is said: "Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you." — Ephesians 5:13-14 (NIV)

    My plea to Christians. My hope for the church.

    When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in place, what is mankind that You are mindful of them, human beings that You care for them? — Psalm 8:3-4 (NIV)

    "Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone—while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?" — Job 38:4-7 (NIV)
    Ray Majoran - Portaits
    This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. — 1 John 3:16-18 (NIV)

    Over the last number of years, I've had the opportunity to spend time in India and Nepal. As part of that journey, I created a 160-page photo-driven book featuring many of the people and places I encountered along the way. Check out the book on Compassion Gallery, a fine art photography project created by myself, and long-time friend, Brian Klassen.
