"One of the questions people of faith are asking over and over to ourselves lately is: How is God with us during thispandemic? I don’t know but I believe God is right there just beyond our perceiving. Waiting, gestating, wintering,and seeking for something better to be born out of this chaos just like God has always been through the history of thew…
 
When Zacharias burnt the incense the dark cloud of smoke became the presence of God. And then he left that experience of encountering God in the darkness and he was left speechless. There was a mystery which was held in the darkness that then was held in his silence and from that mystery John the Baptist began to gestate in the darkness of Elizabet…

That's the gift of uncertainty. It can motivate us to make the changes that can only lead to more wholeness for ourselves and for …
 
In this fifth message of the Active Hope series, Allen Ewing-Merrill invites us to reject denial and despair and instead choose active engagement- to envision a life-sustaining way of being and to dare to believe is possible, trusting that all things are possible.על ידי Allen Ewing-Merrill
 
Katie explores the notions of power-over and power-with, and realizes that power-with---collaborative power-- means so much more than an effective strategy for victory.
