Breath that gives life

 

“Don’t treat God like a stranger. He loves you. He believes in you. He wants your success. To find Him you don’t have to climb to heaven or cross the sea. His is the voice you hear in the silence of the soul. His is the light you see when you open your eyes to wonder. His is the hand you touch in the pit of despair. His is the breath that gives you life.”

-Rabbi Jonathan Sacks

"Tomorrow Come!"

So grateful!

In 2017, Abbey Way cut its first album. Tomorrow (Saturday) Abbey Way will record its second album entitled "Tomorrow Come." This time it will be of original Advent songs. Our premiere artist Brenton along with vocalist Missy, musicians Natalie (violinist) and Pam (pianist) will gather to sing and play through Abbey Way's beloved songs of the coming liturgical season.

Please keep them in your prayers for it will be a long (but delightful) day of work ahead of them. The album will be coming out in time for Advent with an album release party and sing-a-long sometime in December. (Details will be forth coming.)

I have been listening to the demo tracks from the rehearsal and they are awesome! So full of life and God and goodness! "Tomorrow Come" is almost here! Can't wait to share it!

With JOY!

Loving the questions themselves...

“Love the questions themselves, as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”

RAINER MARIA RILKE

Enter the questions with others where ever you can.

Here is a resource guide from “On Being” to help you.
