“Gales of stress threaten to bend us to the ground” (from Psalm 119:137-44 in “We Love Your Invitations”). We sure do need support to come back to balance! The Psalms, Listening Practices, and conversations are a consistent way to regulate our minds. 

Engage with this Listening Practice today by letting us know what stands out to you. 

The stress of life, the gale force winds of uncertainty, threaten. And we need safe spaces to become. To become at peace with who we are. To become still. To start the process of moving again. To be loved – by God, and by ourselves.
