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...

Today's Prayer
Loving God, thank you for the many ways we can 
express our thoughts and needs. Amen.

Loving the Insights

"I lead a small group of about 12 women, and we were looking for a great Advent study. I had used While We Wait years ago and remembered how beautifully written it was.

I love focusing on the women in the genealogy in Matthew and our church’s Advent sermon series include the songs of Elizabeth, Mary, and Zechariah. So this study seemed just perfect for our 2019 Advent study.

Everyone is enjoying it so much and loving the insights that Mary Lou Redding offers for each character in her study. While We Wait has been a great study for us!"
