Come worship the Creator.
God made us,
in all our weaknesses,
frailties, & perfect imperfections.
If we are the image of God,
our strengths & weaknesses,
even our looks & gifts are of God.
God values us.
God loves us as we were created.
God dreams of a new earth with us.
Sometimes we seek false wholeness, pretending suffering & struggles do not exist or are moral failings.
Our savior knows suffering.
Our savior struggled.
Our savior embraced human fragility as one of us.
Let us worship our God,
who journeys with us,
whose healing comes
not only in joy but
in suffering & fragility.
Praise be to the God of
the cross and of the resurrection.
