Holding on in unknown waters (Fall/Winter 2017)

These past several months have felt like a barrage of horrible stories in the news: multiple hurricanes, devastating wildfires, the horrific Las Vegas tragedy, gross abuse by people in powerful positions, and white supremacists marching and spreading their hate. It is hard to absorb all of this terrible news, let alone make sense of all that is going on in the world today. Sometimes it feels like the small boat that we are navigating in has hit choppy water. As we sail on, instead of getting calmer, the waves are only getting bigger.

A fellowship of generosity and joy (Spring/Summer 2020)

In the last few months we have witnessed many of our world’s leaders attempting to shepherd their people. Like any good shepherd they see a threat and try to keep the sheep away from it. Unlike a hungry wolf or a lion, this pandemic is an invisible threat making it an extremely difficult task for shepherds.
