This week I was invited by South African Worship Academy and Year of Your Life to host a joint class day. The group was a beautifully diverse gathering of Sotho, Zulu, Afrikaner, South African English, Venda, and South Korean, and the goal of the day was to worship together and to explore Psalm 139 and how it relates to worship.
As I write this note to you, Chandra is hosting Divorce Care for Kids at a local school. DC4K has also attracted a diverse group of students who are handling the trauma they've experienced in their own unique ways.
Both groups of students, the young adults on Wednesday and the primary school children today, are discovering the same beautiful, profound reality: God knows us. And, not like you might know engines or I might know computers--He knows us. Intimately. Tenderly. Deeply. Entirely.
He knows the joys and the pains we have experienced on our journey. He knows our strengths; He knows our weaknesses. He knows what's amazing about us; He knows what's ugly about us.
And He embraces, even celebrates, all of it.
