Showing up

Glennon Doyle Melton says that “the only constant family rule is that everyone has to keep showing up.” I think that’s true for traditional families, and I think it’s true for the family of God. We have to keep showing up for each other. Sometimes that means being physically present, but more often than not, showing up just means being faithful.

I won’t forget

It took less than 60 seconds of exchanging smiles with Agnes for her to start talking with me. She only spoke a little bit of English but used every word at her disposal to talk about Maureen, of whom she couldn’t be more proud. Soon, Agnes was holding my hand in the back of the ambulance, smiling and laughing and telling stories.

Then, she turned serious. “We are suffering,” she said. I looked back at her a bit confused because we were just talking about how happy she was now that Maureen was healed. I asked her to explain. She told me that they were hungry, that they needed food, and that they suffer.
