A moment of reflection with words from Rev. Lindsay Ross-Hunt, Associate Rector and Campus Chaplain at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Bellingham, WA.
And yet, how we do church is not the church – we are. And we navigate these uncharted waters as so many of the saints have done before us, leaning into the wind of the Spirit as she carries us forward into whatever is next. For as Julian reminds us in the image of the hazelnut, that which God has created, “lasts and ever shall, for God loves it. In this little thing I saw three properties. The first is that God made it. The second that God loves it. And the third, that God keeps it.” God keeps us, and God will keep the church, even if and when it looks different than it did before. And “all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.”
