Moving Beyond Our Ways

“The biblical story abounds with instances of people being torn loose from their moorings, from a settled existence, and discovering that God is present in the situation…It is interesting to note the witness of these pilgrims is that these crises are times of judgement. In fact, the word crisis in the Greek means precisely that. In other words, transition times are times in which God calls our old ways of living and looking at things into question, calls us to move beyond them. These pilgrim foremothers and fathers of ours also tell us that these very same times can be times of blessing. Those who do press on, who are willing to leave the old behind, experience God’s healing, redeeming, resurrecting power.”

-John and Adrienne Carr
