Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. - Galatians 6:2 (KJV)
Twice a year my church picks up trash along two miles of roadway. We divide into groups and start at each end, working until we meet each other.
I remember the first time we went out. I was scanning the sides of the roads while riding to our starting point....
If I slow down, God can show me opportunities to lift others up.

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.”
