I love the word repurposed. It conjures thoughts of time and effort, intention and drive, commitment and patience. It’s full of hope, I think, that what’s neglected, ugly, and tired can find meaning again. Find purpose.
“Watch closely,” the Maker promises, “I am preparing something new; it’s happening now, even as I speak, and you’re about to see it. I am preparing a way through the desert; waters will flow where there has been none.” Isaiah 43:19
I’m particularly passionate about race and culture, justice and mercy. And while I serve as a speaker and facilitator with Relate2Color, a Christian diversity consulting firm, the older I get, the more I don’t know. I have a long way to go in grasping the layers of wounds from my country’s injured history. But I believe God’s making a way through the darkest of nights, the parched deserts, the veiled secrets — He’s working through all of that in my own heart. I cling to the promise that He’s preparing something new, and I want to be a part of it.
Together, let’s reflect and then join God in redeeming what’s broken in our own communities. Let’s live Gospel-infused lives.
