"The story of our faith, our very existence, begins and ends with joy."

~ Eugene Peterson, As Kingfishers Catch Fire

Serving Jesus is a joy, but many lose their joy as it evaporates in the unrelenting heat of the world's constant need, often fueled by the kindling of our own broken attempts to douse the lapping flames. Rather than being trees by the water, deeply nourished even in drought, we are burning out.

There is a different way—a way sustainable. For the fruit of our faith to spread wide, we must go deep—deep into the love our Father has for us. He welcomes into nourishing rest, restores our depleted souls, and gives us each our pace with grace.

It is my joy to companion with you, to co-labor with Christ in sustaining the souls of his servants, to offer you ways to sip and steep in Jesus's attentiveness to you as he strengthens you. Welcome!
