"Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
for You are the God of my salvation;
for You I wait all the day long."
The psalmist writes here about waiting "all the day long," but a group of faithful retreaters waited two years to come together to learn about visual faith. The Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML) from the Monroe Zone in southeastern Michigan first contacted me to speak at a retreat planned for March of 2020. Cancelled twice because of the pandemic, we recently met at the Maumee Bay Lodge and Conference Center in Oregon, Ohio. The theme of the retreat was Encourage One Another and, gathered around God's Word and in prayer, that is exactly the blessing God brought to this event.
