Religion & Spirituality
Our discussion this week is hosted by Anna and Josh. In Luke 3:1-6 we hear about John, son of Zechariah (aka John the Baptist) preaching and fulfilling a prophecy from Isaiah about preparing the way of the Lord. Josh talks about how this reminds him that even Jesus didn't do it alone, the way was prepared before him. Anna talks about trauma informed care in regards to church community in Storyline and how that can often mean slowing down and being still. Sometimes the dark, slow places are not bad places to be, but more like wombs to grow and heal in. The good news is that slowness is not a compromise, it is sacred.
Anna Hoesly is a Pastor and Organizer at Storyline Community in Milwaukie, Oregon.
Josh Kingsley is Pastor at King of Kings Lutheran Church in Milwaukie, Oregon.
