I just read a post by Kathy Escobar entitled, “what seems to help in the midst of pain,” on the Geography of Grace blog. Kathy offers what I think are some very important and helpful ideas and insights relating to “helping” those who are in some type of pain. As some of you may know, I have had a very difficult, challenging, and painful year that ended with my departure from the ministry I had served for nearly twenty years. Kathy offers important insights and helpful suggestions as she shares some of her own pain as a fellow traveler. I too am learning and growing from the pain I experience on my journey. While I am learning to accept it and perhaps even come close to embracing it at times, I am not at a point in my own spiritual journey where I can welcome it or count it as joy yet.
