“She was breathing deeply, she forgot the cold, the weight of beings, the insane or static life, the long anguish of living or dying. After so many years running from fear, fleeing crazily, uselessly, she was finally coming to a halt.

A moment later, the whole sky stretched out above her as she lay with her back against the cold earth.”

Thinking about community, sin, and restoration //



{From Paul Tripp's 'Your walk with God is a Community Project’}

Galatians 6:1-2 // "Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one…
