From Choas to Community: Weaning

God is with us, even when we do not act in Christlike ways towards our sisters and brothers. God is with us, sending messages through “angels” to encourage us to engage the really hard questions, to admit to our sins, own up to our mistakes, turn our lives around and head in a new direction.
