five on Friday

Holy God of Joy. We rejoice in the reality of who You are. We live within the joy of your love for us. Our contentment comes and goes. Our happiness ebbs and flows. Our feelings depend upon our circumstances, our physical health, our brain chemistry. But our joy is deeply rooted in our identity as your beloved children. And so we give you thanks. We are yours forever. Amen.

1 Tragedy and the gift of presence unpacked here.
2 In the stillness, God is there and wonderfully purposeful.
3 Twelve signs of healthy church leadership teams outlined here. 
4 Twenty mesmeric images that tell a story
5 And ten good ways to know your best colleagues will quit. HR January blues!
