Today I had the opportunity to share lunch with a great group of pastors in the Kennett Square Community.
Over lunch, we shared about the past few years and lessons learned while traveling in a most unique season.
- Life has not been easy, people (ourselves included) are still struggling to understand what was, and what will be.
- In the midst of chaos, God has been gracious and we have witnessed amazing growth in people (ourselves included).
- While unsure of exactly what the future holds, we are excited for the opportunity to be a part of what the Spirit is doing.
- We have all found strength in the midst of weakness.
Earlier this week Father Richard Rohr shared a meditation that spoke of A Spirituality of Imperfection, Strength in Weakness. His words rang very true and spoke to my experience over the past six years. In the midst of weakness, the Spirit has been strong and I have seen amazing things.
The blessings I have received over the past six years have been there because, not in spite, of my weakness. It feels as if the weaker I become, the stronger the Spirit moves.
In truth, what is happening is I am getting myself out of the way and allowing the Spirit to work freely.
Where I once sought to be in control and portray a sense of strength and power that facade has been removed. Less of me, more of the Spirit.
As the Apostle Paul says, “It is when I am weak that I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10
On the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month, I host a small group that meets via ZOOM – Tuesday Night Reflections.
After a time of gathering I present a brief meditation followed by a time of discussion and sharing.
If you want to join in send me a msg and I will get you the ZOOM link.
This past Tuesday I shared about finding strength in weakness.
