Excavation is a messy business,
the plowing through
feelings more than feelings,
memories that rise and
shape the caverns of hiding.
Look around—begin where
you are, he says…*

How are you navigating the landscape of your heart today? Take out your tools. Do not be complacent. We have this day to let Jesus work in us. And another. Let’s go.
