Reflections of the Beloved

Hello Element!

What a beautiful Easter we had together! We brought together our Beloved series with a final word... in addition to being Chosen, Blessed, Broken, and Given... the Beloved children of God are Resurrected. We celebrated the profound truth that while Jesus died and rose again to defeat death, hell, and the grave... the biggest and best reason that he did it wasn't just about defeat... it was about inviting us into the same resurrection life.

His story IS our story. Our story IS His story. That's the whole point of it all.

And so, we are left with an even deeper grasp of our Belovedness, aren't we? I am. I marvel at the truths we have discovered in this series. I rejoice in the ways that my own heart has found new depths of freedom and abundance and joy.

And now... it's time to hear from YOU.

There's something very powerful about taking the truths we have been learning and synthesizing them in a way that can be shared. There's something radically life changing about sharing our stories of struggle and victory in a way that can be a blessing to others. There's something empowering and victorious about taking the ponderings of our heart and putting them into a verbal or written outpouring. When we do this, we embrace all parts of our Belovedness: Chosen, Blessed, Broken, Given, Resurrected.

On Sunday, we are opening the floor to you - to Elementers who want to share a piece of their hearts as a response to our Beloved series. Don't miss this day, guys. These stories will resonate in our hearts deeper than teaching or exposition ever could. These are the poems and prayers from the hearts of our people... these are the songs of the resurrected and redeemed... this are the broken and beautiful legacy of our becoming. Let's celebrate it together.

I love you so, Element.
