This spring weather brings hope. Not only hope for victory over potentially freezing in the night but hope for what is to come. This Lenten season brings hope too. Hope that we might find our lives transformed; housed or unhoused. It is in this season that we actively wait, reflect, and repent.
This month, we fought bad weather, we gathered together anyway, and we were reminded that we are the church together in the hard times. We are better together! We lift up these prayers to our Father in Heaven. The one who knows our hearts and our needs and who always welcomes us back into His fold.
