Dear <<First Name>>,

"Don't chase after what you will eat and what you will drink.
Stop worrying. All the nations of the world long for these things…
Don't be afraid, little flock,
because your Abba delights in giving you the kin-dom.
Sell your possessions and give to those in need.
Make for yourselves wallets that don't wear out —
a treasure in heaven that never runs out.
No thief comes near there, and no moth destroys.
Where your treasure is, there your heart will be too."
— Luke 12:29-34


No one, at the end of their life, would say, “I should have spent more time at the office.” And yet many of us live with the tyranny of measuring-up that keeps us weighed down.

Lightening the load of expectations and “shoulds” is one way to lighten up as well as to literally lighten the clutter that crowds out our serenity. How do we create space to flourish in the ways God intends?
