Good Day Family,
Where do you seek guidance? Who or what leads you? How do you decide what direction to take How to act? Many of us have trusted people in our lives. There are those who have demonstrated wisdom and good will toward us. They have our best interests at heart and help us see things more clearly. They ask the right questions and know us enough to understand our strengths and weaknesses. We turn to those people when we need help processing life’s twists and turns.
Above is a rewording of Psalm 23. One of the resources my work in the National Setting provides to the church are these creative expressions of the sacred texts for today. It reminds us that these words are both ancient and relevant. They invite us to reinterpret them for today and for our lives. I encourage you to take a favorite passage of scripture and paraphrase it. Use your own words and claim it for yourself. And feel the God who Guides speak to you anew.
In Living Faith,
We are the church and as we gather, in whatever form that may be, to worship, fellowship and serve, the church is alive and well.
Let us encourage one another. Remain safe and check in on one another. We will get through this, and when we do…and look back on the other side…we will be stronger, more grateful, and more connected than ever.
