What a gift to have five of our NEFC community (Diane Fawver, Brad Wood, Luann Foster, Cindy and Dan McCracken) share the ways they are tying to live into the following prayer of Henri Nouwen:

Dear God, give me the courage to live and work for a new heaven and a new earth as Jesus did. Give me the freedom to be critical where I see evil and to offer praises where I see goodness. Most of all, make me faithful to the vision you have given me, so that wherever I go and whomever I meet, I can be sign of your all-renewing love. (Nouwen, With Open Hands)

Here is the video, in case you missed it from our gathering or want to watch it again.



May we all continue to find ways to live into the vision God is giving us as individuals and a community as we seek to be a sign of God’s all-renewing love.
