Jesus said, “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.” - Matthew 7:24 (NRSV)

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.”
