The main character in the French novel Les Misérables is Jean Valjean, an ex-convict haunted by his past. Like Valjean, we make choices that we wish we could take back. Choices of others may have harmed us, and we bear the scars today. We all bear physical and emotional wounds...
Holy One, may we see your face today. May we reflect your grace this day, and may our lives encourage others to fall more deeply in love with you. In the name of your Son, Jesus, we pray. Amen.
The RESILIENCE conference in 2021 was so uplifting and nourishing. It was wonderful to be with other Christians around the world at this retreat, who truly care about responding to trauma in a compassionate way by teaching spiritual practices to help with grounding and healing.”
Join us for the next RESILIENCE conference on September 29-30, 2023. Learn more at UpperRoom.org/resilience.
