Each little step that you take, each time that you embrace love my light shines. Each time that you show kindness and mercy my light shines. Each time you embrace truth and justice my light shines. Lisa Hunt-Wotton
The sound of running water is helpful for meditation and also helpful for those who are having trouble sleeping. The slow whooshing noises are the sounds of non-threats, which is why they work to calm people. They are soothing to our brains.
Shalom is much more than peace. In the Hebrew context, Shalom is thought of in relationship to the land, the soil and Gods creation. It is the opposite to no conflict. Shalom is when the eco system, the land and life is the way that it should be. It is when everything is flourishing, when everything is working the way that is should be.
There is a new world and it has already begun. It works through healing and forgiveness and fresh starts and peace and hope. It brings hope through beauty and life and flourishing. There is good news of freedom and justice and beauty and life. Those who follow Christ should be the bearers of this good news to all people, creatures, creation, cultures and every place that they encounter.
Truly He taught us to love one another; His law is love and His gospel is peace. Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother; And in His name all oppression shall cease.
When I look at social media and the news today and hear harsh and often condemning outpouring of people, often Christians, about topics like abortion, homosexuality, feminism, gender equality.

In Jesus we have a God who is safe and a universe that is safe. We have a God who does not blame, does not punish, does not threaten, does not dominate. We have a God who breathes forgiveness. Rohr
