Post of the week from these parts:

What Do We Do With All This Grief?

This whole suffering world is awash with the tears of God and no one cries alone.

If we deeply care about justice, justice in our streets, in our churches,  in our schools, in our communities, in our world, we will keep making spaces for deep lament in our hearts, because when our hearts are moved to lament, the very heart of God is moved toward all of us.and we are moved toward all the vulnerable.

well, goodness – who can we find to love and serve?

Can I invite you to come Join our Community on the Way
as we begin a 6-Week WayMaker Online Bible Study

Wherever you are, whatever you are facing, in the very eye of your storm or at the bottom of your depths of disappointment or unspoken broken, friend, can I give you my compass?

A compass to find your way. A compass to part the waves.

Because you and I are both on a journey to find our way— to find The Way—to know God. Because journeying isn’t just walking where Jesus walked, but walking in the way Jesus walked. And the spiritual practice – this SACRED compass – that we’re going to unpack in the WayMaker study together is the soul’s very real and directing compass to keeping company with God.

In our time together, we’ll see how the WayMaker is not a far way off. He’s no distracted lifeguard, oblivious while you flail and drown in the deep end. But instead, He is here, right here. 

Will you join me for the WayMaker Online Bible Study this summer with the community at FaithGateway? Our journey begins June 13th.

This free six-week journey will help us all together  develop a S.A.C.R.E.D daily habit, a rule of life, that will reorient our souls in relation to God through Scripture, prayer and study. 

Being with you, walking on the Way, all of us together in community, is a humbling joy that lays me low with gratitude.

Will I get to see you there too, June 13?

deep breath.
whisper it to your soul:

I don’t have to perform for Him today.

I am sung over today.

He performs His love for me.

I am delighted in. I am rejoiced over. I am loved on.

Today, I’m listening everywhere for His love song over me.

“The LORD your God is with you,the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in His love He will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.

Zephaniah 3.17
