We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER Gracious God, I get along with most people. You know that, God. I like most folks, and I try to treat people well, with love and care, most of the time. Or so I like to think. I think I “pursue the things that make for peace.” (Romans 14:19) But now a conflict has arisen, and I am not sure what to do about it. I have tried to just ignore it, manage my life around [...]

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. WE PRAY: A PERSONAL PRAYER Holy Spirit, I need your guidance. I read the words of Scripture, and want to follow them and apply them to my life, but I know that they only have power to really guide me when they are enlivened by you. Sometimes, I hear your voice speaking to me… or at least I think it is your voice. I sense your nudges and promptings… or at least it feels to me like they are from [...]

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in service and generosity. A PERSONAL PRAYER God of Peace, "Do not be anxious..." I hear you, God, but it is easier said than done. Sometimes, I know what makes me anxious. Will there be enough? Enough to pay the bills? Enough to do the things I feel you calling us to do? I have been so blessed over my lifetime, but there have been times in my life when too much of my energy was spent worrying about "enough." Forgive me [...]
