“When God’s love touches us in our neediness–the sorrow and suffering inherent in the human condition–we name it mercy. Mercy is perhaps the loveliest of all God’s qualities.” Elaine Prevallet
Here is the greatest challenge for me. The Old and New Testament are filled with statements about God’s unfailing love–“the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.” (Lamentations 3: 22-23) It is easy to be grateful for God’s love, but how do I let His love, Christ’s love, flow through me like living waters to those around me? This three day weekend, a pivot point between summer and fall, a transition from old and to new seasons, is a great time to consider this call.
