Beloved not Perfect: The Way to be Rooted and Grounded Even in the Strange Day We Live

Hard to Pray? Me too. Here’s Some Tools.
Honesty in prayer (and all of life!) isn’t just OK, it is THE way after God’s heart. This is the humility God desires.

Wake Up! Wake Up!
At dinner last night we were talking about the trumpets blasting of Rosh Hashanah. All the kids wanted to hear itÂ with their own ears so bad.
