We confess and pray: Defier of Labels, teach me to meet my neighbors in their fullness.
The discipline of rejoicing is an act of resistance when injustices and struggles pile up. If we do that much, we triumph.
Dream big, bold, and brave. God bless the dreamers, young and old, and bless the lands their dreams carry them to.
Kenneth L. Samuel
On this Ash Wednesday we are mindful of the ashes from which we were created.
Quinn G. Caldwell
God knows that behind every revenge fantasy and every bit of righteous anger and every unholy wish for our enemies’ demise lies some ancient hurt or old wrong or fresh wound. And God bends down from on high to gather our tears.
Still, you can’t offer Mercy to an enemy every week and not start to mean it, even a little. You can’t put Healing in someone’s hand for months on end without something rubbing off.
God give me the courage to be a vessel for Your light, a channel for Your grace, a laborer in the vineyard of Your peaceable Realm.
Hope can feel impossible and maybe even absurd. But hope is more than issues and ideas. Hope is where we find God.
The most effective prayers for abusers are offered from the strength garnered with distance. Pray with your cheek far from the strike and find your strength.
Congregations are soup kitchens for the spiritually hungry, shelters for the spiritually homeless, nests for the baby bird in all of us.
