Here’s to the water-walkers!
The faithful who manage to hover above the tide of these days, the currents of stress, and and the depths of crisis. Jesus calls us forward with the outstretched promise of refuge and strength.

Here’s to the water-walkers!
The faithful that support the ones keeping vigil, advocating for care, and marching for justice. Water laps at the toes of the servants who prepare meals, run errands, walk dogs, tend children, and oh-so-much more.

Here’s to the water-walkers!
Sometimes those who lean into Jesus carry the mother-lode of burden: managing a family struck by COVID or sustaining a community separated by distancing protocols. Still others craft lesson plans or balance a home front-turned classroom.

Here’s to the water-walkers!
Those lifting others in prayer, listening to the fear of unfolding uncertainty, and holding space for the weary.

Here’s to the water-walkers!
The ones who show up, who face each new day with intention, who hear a song in the wind and offer a lilting accompaniment.

Here’s to the water-walkers! Faithful all.
