Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.

         He called the twelve         and began to send them out two by two,          and gave them authority over the unclean spirits.                   —Mark 6.7

Yes, you will face the demonic— evil, injustice and oppression in all its pleasant disguises. And often you will shake their dust from your sandals.

But don't be afraid. The joy of the Beloved is poured into your veins from a pitcher larger than the world.

No depth of darkness can put out the candle.

The sheer mass of blessing in you fear can't budge no matter how hard it trembles, a small island in the great sea of grace.

Don't worry about the darkness. Let there be light.

Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
