You are a Child of God. You are called to the Ways of Jesus, and the Spirit of God binds us together wherever we are. We are in this boat together, and we are called to authenticity and Hope.
The Love of God always stretches us.

It was as if the weeds were making a joke out of all of their work and effort.
We are called in the midst of the realities around us by this Love that calls us to reckless abandon to continue to listen for the Grace of God that is at work.
