If you’ve never read Anne Lamott, I recommend it. She’s a delightful read. One foot in the church and the other in the literary world. I have this quote from her latest book, “Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers”:
“If I were going to begin practicing the presence of God for the first time today, it would help to begin by admitting the three most terrible truths of our existence: that we are so ruined, and so loved, and in charge of so little.”
That pretty much captures it, doesn’t it? We can see that in the discussions on The Lasting Supper where we expose our struggles, our joys, and our powerlessness. But what also thrills me is how much love imbues the conversation there. For example, your support for Wayne and his family is phenomenal.
Don’t forget to schedule an hour of your time to take in the Hangout Friday night, 6pm PST, as Pam Werner shares “I Escaped From Mars Hill”.
