The Weavings journal wove together the voices of the finest leaders in the Christian Spiritual world. It was published by The Upper Room from 1986-2017.
“We are part of a larger reality, a vast vibrant community of meadow and mountain, water and sky, a great rush of life rich with possibility but also bounded by necessity. All things come and go. Whether this be a formula for weary resignation or for tranquil acceptance of the inevitable, the most we can hope for is that all things come and all things go, over and over again.” –John S. Mogabgab, Weavings: A Journal of the Christian Spiritual Life, 2009
From 1986-2017, the Weavings journal “wove together” the voices of the finest leaders in the Christian Spiritual world. Founded by John S. Mogabgab, a personal friend of Henri Nouwen, the journal found its way into the hearts of its readers – pastors, students, contemplatives, all those seeking to go deeper into their relationships with God. The journal was taken out of print in 2017. Currently, The Upper Room is developing resources that will speak to our hungers through today's technologies.

"This is absolutely lovely! How I wish I had been exposed or otherwise taught this beautiful lesson exactly as it is written here when I was a child. Going on 60 years old now, I am just coming to believe the words contained in this piece. As I look back on my life now, I suspect that my feelings of unworthiness of God’s love began at a very young age. Not explicitly, by which I mean to say that I was never told that I was not worthy of God’s love and mercy, but rather implicitly, through my experiences with simple human error and a constant focus on perfection and pleasing others. I cannot express to you how beautiful this piece is to me; I can only tell you that it touches me very deeply. Thank you!" Read more about Pockets.
