(Re)Turning to Wholeness

"Wholehearted living....means cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough."
— Bren√© Brown, Daring Greatly

Several years ago, this congregation embarked on a discernment journey called "Mission Pathways." Through prayer, congregational conversations, and discussions with community partners, our church discovered a particular calling to respond to community needs related to mental health and wellness. The church envisioned a mission focus called "God's Table: A Wholeness Ministry," with wholeness including wellness of body, mind, and spirit.

And then 2020 came along, with all of the disruptions it entailed...and, at the same time, with an even more pressing need for us to care for the wholeness and wellness of our congregation and our community.

Throughout this Lenten season, we are going to be "re-turning" to the mission focus that the congregation discerned prior to the covid
pandemic's eclipsing of our normal rhythms and focusnot because we ever left it behind, but because this is a season to revisit, revive, and reimagine something that we've decided is important to our church. In particular, we're returning to four questions that emerged from our Mission Pathways work, as ways to examine our ministry through the lens of wholeness:

  • Are our resources helping someone write their "wholeness story"?
  • Are we reaching out and sharing the Word with someone who is in need of help with mind, body, or spirit?
  • Is our time used to seek opportunities to help those who are struggling with depression, anxiety, homelessness, or distress of mind, body, or spirit?
  • Are we saying "yes" to everything or are we being focused in our efforts?

How would you answer these questions for yourself right now? How would you answer them for our congregation? How might we explore them together throughout Lent? I can't wait to talk with you about it!

Grace + Peace,

David
