The reason we thought this discussion on the heart, the mind, and Jesus would be relevant and helpful is simply this—we need this conversation. In our individual struggle and sorrow we feel Jesus would have us learn from each other and share our lives with each other: all of our lives, including the messy bits. You know, the parts we do not often bring on a Sunday morning (by the way, those parts are welcome on a Sunday morning). There are some of us who have never seen a licensed therapist. There are some of us who have seen several. However, there are these areas where we overlap.
We long to be more free and more whole.
We all have places in our hearts that need healing and growth.
We believe that Jesus would have us bring these parts of our lives to the Light within the love we have for one another.
With Jesus as king there is no fear when we engage this Light and Love.
We are committed to helping each other flourish. We also believe that, in terms of our collective body of women, when one part suffers, the other parts suffer with it. Your struggle is my struggle. Your pain is my pain. And, glory to God, you’re healing is my healing. You are some of the bravest women we know. We have seen you walk down many hard roads with such grace and beauty. What an honor to journey together. Whatever we carry today, we come here together expecting to find belonging in each other’s midst and expecting God to take make us more free and whole.”
