Paul said, “Keep up your courage . . . for I have faith in God that it will be exactly as I have been told. But we will have to run aground on some island.” - Acts 27:25-26 (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.”
