feed your spirit
Soul hungry? Feed it here.
Ponder: A frigid Sunday afternoon brought locals to a nearby beach. Some flew kites while others sat on large rocks near the shore. A brave few delved into the brisk waters to catch waves. I watched as the restless tide turned one kayaker upside down and right side up again. The kayaker did not retreat, but regrouped and pushed further out into the open waters as fellow kayakers encouraged their friend along. The waves never subsided, and neither did their determination.
Prayer: In the face of unrelenting tides, threatening to toss and overturn us; God give us the strength to turn ourselves right side up again. Be our coast guard in the open waters, offering blessed assurance of a love that will never lose its power. Amen.
As insignificant and inconsequential as we sometimes think our work may be, there is a great gift in just getting a glimpse of how our everyday service to those around us impacts the course of history and affects the trajectory of countless human lives.

Dear Theo, How does a GenX and/or GenY young adult answer in a Christian manner the rather unchristian accusations and name-calling of the older generations? We are trying to please the world (our blood families, church families, and society as a whole) to the best of our abilities, but more often than not are blamed for the plight of America because we aren't doing enough. But how can we do enough when education is out of our reach and jobs are scarce? How can we contribute to society when we are blocked from ever having an opinion? With the shut down and the ACA in full swing, how can we answer in a Christian manner all the negativity and still manage to keep our sanity and calm?
