By grace you have been saved, through faith — and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast. - Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV)

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.”
