Psalm 23: God is Clearing the Way

What does it mean to have a God that leads us? And, can you appreciate the roundabout journey that brings many twists and turns along the way? In His wisdom, God provides a lamp unto our feet...not a crystal ball to reveal the future.

Prayer for a Pandemic

Author unknown

'May we who are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake. May we who have not risk factors remember the most vulnerable. May we who have the luxury of working from home remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent. May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close remember those who have no options. May we who have to cancel our trips remember those that have no safe space to go. May we who are losing our margin money in the turmoil of economic market remember those who have not margin at all. May we who settle in for a quarantine at home remember those who have no home. As fear grips our country let us choose love. During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our Neighbors.  Amen'
