Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds. - Romans 12:2 (NRSV)
I have spent countless hours wondering if I should act, talk, or fix my hair like certain individuals. I see that they are popular, and I think that if I do what they do I will be popular. However, I shortchange myself by not being true to the person God...
I will strive to be true to the person God created me to be.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
