The beach and the ocean are still one of my favorite Mystery Trips, one of my favorite places to go when I am home. I love to sit with my feet buried in the warm sand and watch the waves lap gently onto the shore. There is something so peaceful about that place where the water meets the land, a rhythm that lulls you into a quiet and reflective place, where wonder and mystery collide. It is a place I long for, to sit quietly and have long conversations with God. For me it is that place where I am able to go deeper. Deeper into my faith, my relationship with God, my prayer life, and even my relationship with others…there is just something almost magical for me something that draws me deeper.
How about you? What draws you deeper? How can you dive deeper into your faith this year? How can you go farther into our community of faith? I am looking forward to all this year holds as we go Deeper! Deeper in our Faith and Further into Community. I hope you will join in this adventure and see how deep you can go.
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:17-19 (NIV)
