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?
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?
