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 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.”
