Needing a Helping Hand

The Right Reverend Sandy Millar — speaker at Life in the Spirit this weekend

Good Morning, God!

I am really looking forward to this weekend’s Life in the Spirit conference at the First Presbyterian Church at Koolau. I am feeling very much in need of Your Help, God.

Travel is diverting and wondrously enjoyable, God. But, I am Home now. And I am in need of refilling. I loved being “poured out” — that lovely extroverted time of being connected — of sharing — of hearing and being heard.

Ah, but now God, I want to go and sit at Your Feet. I want to Drink In and Refill. And so I am off this Friday afternoon to listen to Sandy Millar, who as vicar at Holy Trinity Brompton (London) helped launch a revived Alpha Course. That course is a sort of Introduction to Christianity and it helps folks over the many Unseen Barricades that keep people OUT of the church.

Currently Sandy Miller is an assistant bishop for missions in a poor parish in northern London. He has a heart for us humans, God! Just as You do.

I am looking forward to having someone remind me that we ARE loved. When I listen to the News I sometimes despair and rail at You. Could You not have done better by us, God? But, then I realize that we are now “co-creators” with You, God. You await our “permission” to do more — to work in us and on us and through us.

So, God, I am venturing out this weekend to ask for Your Help.

And if anyone else wants to join me the cheaper price has been extended through this Monday.
