LONELINESS

Loneliness is such a common struggle and it even intrudes unexpectedly into quality relationships and supportive Christian community. Unfortunately, feelings of loneliness are often misinterpreted as an ungodly or unnecessary nuisance to be avoided at all costs, rather than being understood as an inevitable reality to be embraced for spiritual growth. In fact, the choice to embrace our loneliness can be a privileged invitation to echo the larger purposes of God.

Shepherd’s Blessing Dinner Doubles the Venues, Doubles the Fun

Two dinners in two locations. That was the 2010 plan for the annual QuietWaters Ministries fundraiser called the Shepherd’s Blessing Dinner. Having maxed out the facility at Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church in 2009, the challenge for planners was to figure out how to keep growing while still providing some continuity for faithful supporters.

The solution: In April 2010, Shepherd’s Blessing Dinners were held at two locations—Family in Christ Community Church, in Westminster, CO, and Cherry Creek Presbyterian in Englewood, CO. The first dinner drew 101 people to register for a north location, and the second dinner was convenient for over 200 people living in the south Denver suburb…

[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;”]T[/dropcap]he temperature was dropping and my fingers were numb. My back hurt. My knees were telling me they were over 50 years old. Still I persisted. “One more shingle and I’ll be done.” I was on the roof of my daughter and son-in-law’s house. A windstorm had peeled the shingles from their roof and flung them around the neighborhood. Our children were out of town, and a snowstorm was predicted. Being a dutiful father, I decided to repair the roof of our children’s home before the next storm could do more damage. What was I afraid of—Water damage. Since the roof had been stripped to the tar paper in seven places, melting snow could seep in and cause extensive damage to ceilings, loors and furnishings. So I determined to fix the problem before it got worse…

300 Give to Make Wounded Whole

[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;”] T [/dropcap]hree hundred people braved rain and cold on April 16 to prove their dedication to helping Christian leaders find restoration and renewal through QuietWaters Ministries. The generosity and sacrifice of donors present at the annual Shepherd’s Blessing Dinner enabled ongoing ministry to hurting pastors, missionaries and key Christian leaders. The evening emphasized how God uses QuietWaters in His healing work of “Making the Wounded Whole.” A matching gift challenge issued by an anonymous donor motivated others to give bigheartedly, and $50,000 was received in gifts and commitments that night. In an uncertain economy, Christians once again revealed their trust is in God. They opened their pocketbooks to bless pastors and others who are facing critical emotional and spiritual needs. In his talk on “Making the Wounded Whole,” Dr. Jerry White referred to the “wounded warrior” who needs to allow someone into his life as part of the healing process. At QuietWaters, our counselors are those significant “someones.” All our clients are served in a confidential environment. However, from time to time, a client will provide a thank-you note which we can share. In the words of one wounded warrior who has been made…
