As summer winds down, I'm looking back at my summer adventures. Bridge of the Gods in Cascade Locks, Oregon was a fun stop. Take a moment to look at the mural at the bridge and there's a parking area right there so you can stop, explore, eat, and shop. I'll be back to explore this bridge and city again. I love the PNW.
Excellent readings today (below are my favorite bits). I'm still trying to figure out my place in all of this -- wanting to grow in faith and share the beauty I find, to not be afraid of being misunderstood, and to be unconcerned with myself. 💗 .
"...live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace... But grace was given to each of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift."
"And he gave some as apostles, others as prophets, others as evangelists, others as pastors and teachers, to equip the holy ones for the work of ministry... so that we may no longer be infants, tossed by waves and swept along by every wind of teaching... Rather, living the truth in love, we should grow in every way into him who is the head, Christ." EPH 1-3, 7, 11-12, 14-15
