Trying to understand theÂ subtleties of the pastÂ that motivate people today. Like groping around in the dark, wondering why people with such a long shared history, do what they do.
Strong feelings seem to come out of pain in the past, from many directions.
And so today I've been quiet in my spirit and praying.
Praying for the broken, for the hurting, for the healing needed. Praying that there might be a future of wholeness for people.
This is my work, for now. On some days it is to exhort the sinner, on other days it is to hold the broken, but on most days it is to pray for the distance between the two, to shrink quickly because they are the same person.
