“Be not afraid of growing slowly. Be only afraid of standing still.” - Chinese Proverb
When we despair at the unrest of wherever we are in our lives, we can be comforted that it will pass. And when we find ourselves clinging to the delight of now, it may be prudent to remember that life is continuously changing.
This issue speaks to the variety of life. The experience of going away to college, new parents, falling in love, empty nesters, and more. And how to let faith evolve and grow through it all.
What is your experience? How has your faith evolved? Share your story.
“I do not understand the mystery of grace—only that it meets us where we are and does not leave us where it found us.” - Anne Lamott
