Paul wrote, “I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” - Ephesians 3:17-18 (NIV)
Over 30 years ago I met a woman who made a lasting impression on my faith journey. She was bright, articulate, a mother of two young children, and a career woman. She also had breast cancer. Still, she had a joy that often perplexed me.
We talked about many things...
How do I experience God’s goodness in my life?

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.”
