As I’ve been going through this period where energy is elusive, a friend of ours recommended a sermon series called “The Land Between”. Whether you’ve lost your job, you’re having problems with your kids or spouse, or you’ve encountered health problems, we all at one point or another find ourselves overwhelmed with changes that we didn’t expect and don’t feel equipped to deal with. Sometimes we feel isolated from society and stuck in limbo between what life once was, and where we’d like to be.
This sermon series highlights some of the pitfalls and blessings that we often encounter during these times. I’ve found it almost entirely overlaps with my own experience, which has been no small source of encouragement.
If you also feel stuck in limbo, for whatever reason, I’d encourage you to take a look:
Trust & Complaint
Meltdown & Provision
Discipline & Growth
A Clear and Present Danger...
During lockdown, we’ve seen kindness proliferating. But when this is over, it’s far more likely that we’ll simply revert to our old ways and experience little, if any, lasting change. The danger is not that we'll go back to all the old nastiness of our former lives. It's that it will get worse.
