It has been a season of hands off ministry— of office work and spreadsheets. Sometimes I wonder why ministry looks so different in each season.
I found this excerpt that I wrote less than a year ago:
I know you say not to worry, but it’s hard to not worry when I’m not the one that will be hurt
I read this and am filled again with emotion. I want to fight. I want to go into the trenches.
However, so much of fighting is planning and so much of bringing change is the slow tedious work of sharing story after story.
I pray that we will fight together for justice, but that we will never forget how difficult and tedious that fight really is. I hope we will not give up when loving the least of these looks like spreadsheets and emails. I hope we will not lose heart when we tell the same stories over and over again with no response.
And I hope that most of all that we will never forget that God is justice and we are not fighting alone.
