We’re back in the zone again! The words are flying, melodies ringing, harmonies falling into place, concepts becoming concrete. Song-writing is such a weird thing because the song becomes who you are, what you have been through or what you are going through. In these last couple days of engagement Tyson and I have felt an enormous weight of brokeness for the loved ones around us. It was initially weird to us that all this emotional turmoil would hit so close to our wedding day, a time when we were supposed to be over-the-top excited. But then we both realized how natural it really is. If we cannot hurt with one another, how will we relate. That is what the Christian life is about: community, accountability, love, compassion and grace.
So as we hurt with our loved ones who hurt, and rejoice with those who rejoice, we know that in these next couple of days and the next 50+ years, they will hurt when we hurt, and celebrate when we celebrate.
Oh how I love the body of Christ. Oh how I love my family.
What does community mean to you?
Who should you be hurting with?
Who should you be celebrating with?
