Some of us are drowning in our lives because of our past or our present, others are suffocating under the weight of unmet expectations, and still others are dying of thirst for want of the cold water of a friend. So many of us didn’t grow up with mothers or grandmothers, fathers or grandfathers who loved Jesus, and our hearts are sadly aware of our own weaknesses and inadequacies in the face of real needs in our own homes and around the world. We’re burned out on Facebook; we’re ready to learn community. – Jesus Feminist, Sarah Bessey
