[We look] for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ. - Titus 2:13 (KJV)
Sometimes I find myself complaining about the aches and pains of old age and reminiscing about the “good old days.” In today’s reading, we meet Anna, an elderly widow who did not complain or dwell on the past. She was a prophetess in Jesus’ time, and her circumstances were difficult....
No matter my age, I can focus on God’s promises for the future.

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.”
