“Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mark 6:31
'In this season of unimaginable change, the Holy Spirit is blowing...on purpose, in a direction. The power of "spiritual direction" was experienced by me through WOW! and I was changed in almost unimaginable ways. What a joy to humbly listen to the voice of God---heard and spoken through others.'

Exodus is a beautiful illustration of how even amidst pain, slavery, and hardship, shalom has been and will be carried in through people of all genders and positions.
