Embrace All of Life

Even in exile, in that time of trial,
that struggle far from our comfort zone
far from home and safety,
we are to embrace all of life
the hard and the happy
the pain and the peace
because we are God’s children
and He loves us
and will hold us up
and gather us in
if we are faithful
and believe

Jeremiah 29:1, 4-7
and the sermon “Serenity, Courage and Wisdom”,
