Readings: Psalm 124; Isaiah 54:1-10; Matthew 24:23-35

“For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed,

but my steadfast love shall not depart from you

and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,”

Says the Lord, who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54:10, NRSV

My Dear Child,

I love you no matter what.

Mount Washington will wear away, but my love never will.

The Atlantic may sweep Beacon Hill out to sea, but my peace will hold you fast.

There is nothing you can do that could make me stop loving you,

No words you can say will make me wish anything but peace for you.

I’m in this forever. XXOO ABBA

Come, Lord Jesus, Come.

I am a Christian educator and writer.I have worked in churches, denominational offices, and seminaries. I have a PhD in Theology from Princeton Theological Seminary, with a focus on Practical Theology and educating in faith. In 2010, my book, "How the Other Half Lives: the challenges facing clergy spouses and partners," was published by Pilgrim Press. I believe that words can build doorways that lead to encounters with God through the Spirit.

  1. Thanks, Bill. Rabbi Harold Kushner once said that the scriptures were love letters to and from God. I love that idea. peace, Johnna
