Darren Fred | Lent: Return to Now
Return to wonder. There are mounts of transfiguration.
You may not be able to tell it and be understood. It’s okay.
These transfigurative events are to remind us that in Christ there is no distance.
These transfigurative events are God’s reminder that you are uniquely known and loved
Darren Fred | Return to the Wilderness
Practice radical humility
Resist the temptation of shortcuts
Receive sustaining presences
Remember who you are

We all have our truths, and they are already fully known by God. Will we tell them honestly? Will we listen to the truths of others with compassion and empathy?
Darren Fred | The Times: to kill & to heal
In a time to condemn, Jesus created a time to pause and consider our hearts. Will we hear his invitation towards this healing? Will we listen?
