It’s been a while since I’ve posted; and I can’t really name what the hesitation is about. I am, however, grateful that you’re still there to receive this post. Thanks for sticking around! 🙂
Sharing today two images from time in lamentation over the recent tragedy in Sutherland Springs, TX.
What do we do with pain so deep?
“Can it be, God, that grace pierces as well as heals? Can your grace remind us who blithely go on while so many suffer, that even we are included in your embrace? Forgiven? And called to a new way?” ~Catherine Malotky
Oh, to be about this work first.
On the way to heal Jairus’s daughter, Jesus is touched by the bleeding woman. How does Jesus respond? He empties himself, shifts the focus, the power, and the woman gets to tell her story. (Luke 8:40-56)
The posts from yesterday, today, and the next couple days are journaling pages created during the Mission of Healing with the Salvadoran Lutheran Church in February 2016.
This image contains notes from Pastor Santiago Rodriguez’s sermon at Los Heroes de la Fe. He called our time together “a party for God” – a time to declare hope, to share the word and call of God.
…healing within slow time
Look to the healing river, like a blanket for our souls.
In Christ, the walls of hostility, the walls of division and fragmentation within us and among us are encountered, touched, healed. ~Flora Slosson Wuellner
Sanando el mundo, un abrazo a la vez…
Healing the world, one hug at a time…
