The psalmist wrote, “Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint; preserve my life from the dread enemy.” - Psalm 64:1 (NRSV)
I teach a dance class each week in which we move our bodies in different ways to express emotions, including negative ones. We bring our hands high above our heads and then move them quickly to the ground as if we’re throwing down a large, heavy object to let go...
God listens to both my complaints and my praise.

“For the past two years, I have used Journey to the Table to cultivate community with young adults in Nashville. The rhythm of Journey to the Table with preparation, prayer, listening, silence, and discussion created space for young adults to reflect, grow in their faith, and build relationships. The topics are extremely relevant for emerging adulthood, and the activities and schedule are adaptable for different contexts. We invited the participants to continue the relationships built at Journey to the Table through year-round life groups and affinity groups. I’m looking forward to next year’s Journey to the Table – it truly sets a table for building relationships and growing in our faith.” Learn more about Journey to the Table.
