Tell me the story.
Take me back to the beginning and tell me the story.
Like a mother to her child on each birthday morn, tell me the story of birth and new life.
Tell me of the twinkle in God’s eye, the dream breathed down, the vision made real.
Mark the day. Make it a rhythm to my year. Root me in the story. Build me an altar of remembrance.
Climb up. Look back. Marvel.
Look ahead. Dream.
This week, we’re talking about “rhythms.” And we’re marking two years of Velvet Ashes, celebrating the 2nd birthday of the launch of our community.
We’re going to tell the story of Velvet Ashes, of how we came to be, of what we’ve grown into, and of what we dream to be.
This week at The Grove, we invite you to share on “Rhythms” (don’t miss the book club discussion on Emotionally Healthy Spirituality about what rhythm means to our lives). But we’re also inviting you to link up about what Velvet Ashes has meant to you. Through Velvet Ashes has God touched the rhythm to which you live and minister?
How has God met you this year through this community?
Maybe it’s been a Connection Group, maybe it was the Online Retreat, a book from Book Club, or the encouragement slipped into your inbox each day. Perhaps it’s been sharing your voice in writing, having a place to share your story and discover you are not alone.
This week we want to celebrate the hand of God in this place. We want to tell the story.
At The Grove we have some big audacious news to share with you, so be sure to join us beginning Thursday 6pm EST.
