God is the same Savior, Redeemer, Partner, Friend, Reformer, in our lives today as God was in Christ.
We must confront our past to understand our present, and we must strive for a better future—continuing God’s Good Work around us.
We should always celebrate when someone comes into the party. We should never overlook the importance of unlikely friendships. And, we should never underestimate the power of belonging.
Our internal clock seems to move faster than the second hand on our watch. We want a quicker route to our destination, but a quicker route only gets us off course.
Are we sometimes afraid to ask God the challenging questions, because we are afraid of the Questions God might ask us?
