Are you taking care of yourself? Over the past few days I’ve read posts from people who are feeling tired and discouraged. I’m learning that protest is not easy, especially when there is something new every day that can be protested. I decided that I need to focus my efforts on the call of faith to be welcoming to the stranger and to care for all who Jesus describes as “the least of these” (Mathew 25). I’ve also learned that it is important each day to see and rejoice in what is good in the world. This refreshes us spiritually and then energizes us for the work ahead. So dear friends, what beautiful or good thing have you notices today?
Today I am personally thankful for: Elizabeth Warren #shepersisted; for all the women in history whose collective work made it possible for me to serve as an ordained pastor; the early morning fog that enveloped the land to give a quiet beauty.
