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.

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.”

Join us every Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. (CST) for prayer and worship on Facebook Live.
