Prayer changes things. Perspective, desire, hopes and yes, even God is changed when people pray. Why? Because choosing to slow down and pray means giving up our possession of that which is not ours, but Gift.
Sometimes it’s intentional, other times happenstance.
At the very least, we often need prayers to come alive for us, to animate before our very eyes.
Prayer is life. May we ever discover how our prayers and lives connect with one another and justice in the world.
In a insta-culture growth is underrated unless it happens fast.
In a go-go-go paced world the slow work of the Spirit often goes unnoticed.
Slow growth is still growth. Oh that we might curate spaces to celebrate how far we’ve come in those oft unseen places of our inner lives. After all, what good is it for a person to have it all but not herself?
Honor the growth. Talk about it, slowly.
Think about it: what transitions have mattered most for you? What were the habits or intentional practices that made it work. When you tell your story, how do you talk about the big events AND the transitions between life events.
Transitions matter. They set the stage or prepare the ground or provide the platform for that which is next to emerge. Practice meaningful transition.

God is all around. Life is all around. Place matters. Keep watch, who knows what you may find.
