[Jesus] looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, “Ephphatha!” (which means “Be opened!”). - Mark 7:34 (NIV)
At a recent parish retreat we were asked to share a personal story about a profound experience that taught us something about ourselves. The story I first thought of telling involved a deep healing experience. But certain details connected to my experience were too intimate, so I chose to share...
God calls me to share my story with honesty and courage.
For courage to share my story

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.”
