Tears of Joy

Monday Meditation

This week I reflect on Psalm 126 and how our sorrow (tears) can be instrumental in the joy that we experience through God. The pain and heartache are not mitigated, but God moves in as a presence of comfort, sparking the joy of the work God can and will do.

Building a theology of self-care together
In the Great Commandment, we hear Jesus call us to not only love God but to also love our neighbors as ourselves. This podcast is about the “as ourselves” part, as we learn what it means to care for ourselves in a holistic way that opens our spirits to more fully care for all of creation.

I began running when I was a kid. My mom says I went straight from crawling to running. However, I have been over a lot of hurdles to get to this point, and I would be nowhere without several communities to help me get here.
I am also a pastor in the United Methodist Church, and I have used my passion for creating loving and caring communities to help share God’s grace.
