Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you. Having a hundred sheep and losing one, you leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that is lost until you find it. When you've found it you lay it on your shoulders and rejoice. —Luke 15.4-5
You must leave a lot behind for your life to become whole.
What the Beloved lets go of to have you!
If there were a hell God would always be there carrying people out.
There is a flock that is not well without you.
When you think you've run away, proud of your independence, you're really just lost. You need each other.
All of life is God's party at having found you. Or maybe, today, another.
Don't be ashamed to be brought in on the shepherd's shoulders: you got lost in the best possible way, looking for God. Remember each of the other ninety-nine came the same way.
Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
