Like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. - 1 Peter 2:5 (NRSV)
As an Upper Room intern who is blind, I have shared laughter and tears with our Braille readers. While I initially contacted them about subscriptions, together we found an unbreakable bond in Christ Jesus. These conversations reminded me that we are called to be a holy priesthood in Christ. But...
We can imitate Christ by helping to bear one another’s burdens.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
