• In the same way I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born,” says the Lord. “If I cause you the pain, I will not stop you from giving birth to your new nation,” says your God.
     ~ Isaiah 66:9 (NCV)

  • I suspect that many of you experienced the same cascade of emotions I have felt over as the past week (compounded by everything these last several months).  First the virus and the need for personal isolation; now, an explosion of racial tension and its paroxysm of anger. It’s a lot to absorb!  So much, that my spirit weeps and my soul cries.  Perhaps, yours too?
