This week the Wednesday Festival was a particular joy to piece together. We have such richness of experience in our Rev Gal and Pal community—we seem to be experiencing all of Ecclesiastes’ seasons here among ourselves. It really feels like an honor to be able to share a glimpse of that with you this week.
A time to be born:
Hip2B is a new mama, again! Thanks be to God!
A time to heal (and to ask for healing):

A time to mourn:
And she shares some thoughts on a tough day.
A time to embrace:

A time to speak:
Read about a particularly beloved story, and the joy of storytellers.
A time to weep:

A time to gather advice:
Cody is celebrating his 100th post and his 18th birthday. Pop over when you get a chance and give his query a little thought.
A time to share advice:
Mitch's church has a different kind of prayer chain. It's two circles, not a tree. He also looks at it from a geek point of view.
Ahem. I may have made those last two seasons up. Nonetheless, we’ve got a little bit of everything today, and I’m very grateful for all of it—and for the generous souls who share where they are.
