Live your lives in [Christ], rooted and built up in him and established in the faith. - Colossians 2:6-7 (NRSV)
When I was a freshman in high school, my dad lost his job. He had survived a stroke, but his employer thought he wasn’t up to the task anymore. We were going through hard times as my parents’ savings account kept dwindling the longer my father was out of work....
When I feel reluctant, God is still at work in me.

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.”
