The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. - Psalm 34:18 (NIV)

I have always been fascinated by Kintsugi, the traditional Japanese art of mending broken pieces of pottery with liquid gold, silver, or lacquer — thus highlighting and enhancing the breaks and adding value to the broken objects.

Kintsugi reminds me of my condition. Many times in my journey of faith...

Today's Prayer
Dear God, remind us not to give up on you when we are broken. Amen.

While several strategies for reopening the world are being discussed, I encourage you—the people of God everywhere—to allow this season to be a formative one during which you can make new discoveries about God and increase your faith. Use this time to embark on a life of prayer, a life of study, and a life of action—involvement in the community.”
