We are all still in "recovery mode," aren"t wefrom the long, debilitating and unpredictable COVID Crisis. And while the news is more about the economic, political, and other aspects (as well as the physical and emotional) . . . What about the spiritual recovery we may not even be aware that we need also?
I turned to one of my beloved Wise Women Mentors, Jan Richardson, for discernment and guidance around this. Here is what she offers us all:
As spiritual beings we must learn how to turn toward the brokenness . . . and to imagine how God might want to work through us to put the pieces together anew. Our job is not to banish the brokenness present in the world. We are to say, "Look, here is graceand here, and here. Beyond all reason. Beyond all logic. Here is grace big enough to meet all grief, anger, sorrow, despair; God"s grace that flows into the broken places and inspires us to find the connections, to see new visions, to dream new dreams."
Our call, our invitation that belongs to each one of us now is to sit amid the frustration, the shattering, to not turn away, to bear witness to the wild workings of grace, and to see how God wants to act through each of us to heal and create anew.
