    Lori, this is so very insightful and challenging. Thank you for allowing God to work in and through you to challenge us to go deeper and listen, to pray, to wait, to learn, to grow… Praying for revival throughout this broken land, our broken hearts, our broken homes…

    As someone who fights depression I connected deeply with part of your post.
    As I listen to the grumbling, sarcasm and genuine expressions of concern, I am left with more questions than answers. Why not talk about how to make it harder to acquire guns? Why not meet in the middle to discover God’s presence as something we have no control over, yet can powerfully receive or reject? Why have we failed at helping families who suffer with mental illness?
    I think one answer that is in the shadow of your excellent post is practicing the ministry of presence. The late Charles Siburt underscored this vital compassionate activity, and you obviously know how to do it as well. May we all learn to better practice the ministry of presence to a world in pain.
