If I spent enough time with the tiniest creature –
even a caterpillar –
I would never have to prepare a sermon.
So full of God is every creature. ~ Meister Eckart

Where do you find the fullness of God?

The road ahead

Hope and despair, truth and lies, narratives colliding, a country in shambles. How can we grow to see the truth of another person’s lived experience? Wonder what is going on inside them? Stay curious to how the world appears through their eyes? What would it be like to walk in their shoes?

Will we then know the things that make for true peace?

Bridge building

“If we’re to live up to our own time

Then victory won’t lie in the blade

But in all the bridges we’ve made

That is the promise to glade

The hill we climb

If only we dare” ~ Amanda Gorman, Inauguration poem excerpt

What is your bridge to make?


In the story of the burning bush God said, “I have seen the misery of my people who are in Egypt. I have heard their cry because of their taskmasters. Indeed, I know their sufferings and I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land…” Exodus 3:7-8

How does God see, hear, know about you, and is near? What will God do for you? How do you listen for God’s promise?
