Thank you for the feast- invitation to go deep into the roots of Yahweh. All the way into the recesses of why... Both a question, and a fledgling nudge to climb into the expansive limbs of Who You are. But I hear your heartbeat echo when I am down here midst the roots. Thank You for the feast journey compost turned, and turned again to rich, brown worm earth. Dust and living water. Thank You jfig 1/2022
A bit about prayers of return: My soul friend asked me, “Where are you returning from?” Good question. Places of doubt, skewed theology, giant looming questions. Places like dinosaur exhibits – things that look like they shouldn’t be real but are. On my worst days – willful disobedience. Busyness – days when it is sheer delight to step into the safe Presence of Yahweh and remember, this is home. Always, the welcome is the same. This is home.
Psalms 27, 32 and 84 talk about making God one’s refuge, a home with Him. You can access those readings easily here:

And finally, John 14: 23 “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.” This, friend, is an epic journey…
