Parts Unknown: it's a mystery!

The Mystery of God

"To hear that some things are a mystery was both simultaneously infuriating but also incredibly liberating!"


prayer and comfort in the mystery of faith
There are some things in life that are mysteries. Some things have no evidence or proof but that doesn't mean they don't exist or that we can't know more about them. Corrie Ten Boom said, "Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God." That is what we are going through right now. Are you able to trust God?

I'm in a clergy cohort that meets regularly for adventure and to discover new ways to be in ministry in the world. Over the next eight weeks, I will be sharing our thoughts on what comforts us right now. In this video, my friend Rev. Julie Schendel talks about uncertainty and how it can actually be liberating. I hope you find it as comforting as I did.


I love you and I'm praying for you!
