As imperfect individuals, and an imperfect group, we can be quite blind to our shortcomings. God’s love for us, though, is unconditional, and in a community that is “powered” by God’s love we can listen to one another, truly hear, and learn how to be better and braver. One thing we will do at our August 19 retreat is remind ourselves that we are powered and led by God’s love. We will remind ourselves of our core values – those strong plants to nurture – and note if there are weeds we need to attend to. And we’ll rejoice that God is still speaking among us ….
Peace and grace to you,
