If you have experienced this loss, my heart aches for you, no matter if the loss was years ago or recent. I pray that you experience God’s perfect peace. I have found healing in sharing our journey with others."

    I could write pages and pages about the “lessons learned” during the last 19 months—about the ways in which the Holy Spirit moved and spoke, revealed and uncovered, shook and stirred myself individually and the world collectively.

    Where do you find deep, internal, restful peace? Is it a place or a person? What makes the place or person peaceful? Where does peace originate, and what is its nature? Is it contingent upon outside factors? Is it sustainable? Does it sustain you?

    If you were to come into my home, you would find different items that are important to me and our family.  One of my favourites is a stone carving of 6 people joined that represents the members of our family.  For me, it is also an image that reflects the beauty of being joined together as the greater family of God.  Together, as...
