I’M SO GLAD YOU ARE HERE!
I believe that all good and holy work begins with becoming more firmly rooted in our identity as beloved children of God. When we begin to get flashes of understanding of how lavishly we are loved, we can start to imagine what it might look like to extend that same love and grace to others and to all of creation.
If the saying, “Hurting people hurt people” is true, so too is the idea that healed people heal the world. In the words of William Blake, “…we are put on this earth a little space that we might learn to bear the beams of love.” May we enter into the hard and holy work of healing so that we might be agents of healing in a hurting world.
As much as my introverted self wishes this were not the case, healing is a communal phenomenon as we work together to dismantle oppressive systems, standing in solidarity with the most marginalized among us. Together, let’s envision a world in which all people and communities can flourish. As one of my favorite activists, Andre Henry, says, “A new world is possible. It doesn’t have to be this way.”
It’s my joy and honor to companion you on this journey, just as you are. There is room for our doubts and imperfections as we fumble our way through reconciliation with ourselves, one another, our communities, and our God. Grace upon grace for us all. You are so loved.
