Sunday to Monday / Your Light Will Shine

There is a light in this world, a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness may encounter. We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering, too much pain. Then suddenly the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways. - Mother Teresa

Yesterday we got to hear from our GGCC family who had just returned from Nicaragua with our partner Love, Light and Melody. Their stories of how God touched them through encountering family in Nicaragua were moving. We are grateful for their willingness to risk and share.

Read Isaiah 58 to reflect on how we are all kin in God's family. Here are some starters for your reflections and conversation this week. 

  • How do you react when things don’t turn out as you planned? Where do you see God in the unexpected
  • Mother Teresa said, “The problem with the world is we draw the circle of family too small.” How do you see yourself in the family of God that includes the whole world?
  • When and how do barriers (language, culture, geography, economics) get broken down as sisters and brothers in Christ come together?
  • Looking ahead to next week: When have you wrestled with God?
