Mothers are Heroes | A Story from our WMF Community in Rwanda

We have been friends with Consolee for several years. She owns a successful fruit shop on a main road with a lot of traffic where she sells the best bananas around! Whenever we walk by her shop, she’s always sitting outside to greet us with a big smile, with her newborn baby tied to her […]

The other day, in our International Office prayer time, we encountered a poignant statement from our reading in Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals. The statement echoed lines we earlier read from Psalm 120, “Too long have I had to live among the enemies of peace.

God Will Heal our Wounds

Aaron Strumpel (Word Made Flesh Artist Ambassador) recently released “God Will Heal Our Wounds,” a song written out of Isaiah 58. It is a beautifully prophetic song which speaks to the calling we have been given to love those around us the way God has so sacrificially loved us. May this continue to be our prayer […]
