In this episode, we share a quick 365-day reflection from when the lockdown started. How are things going and what does the future look like? Watch out for next week’s episode where we talk to Rev. Jonathan on more ways to survive and thrive.
We answer a question from a Sanctuary Collective member asking for our thoughts regarding Nan C. Merrill’s Psalms for Praying: An Invitation to Wholeness line which says, “My soul is being consumed with an intense longing to be blessed and sustained by You, O Divine Lover!” Tune in as we consider how sex and intimacy can be uncovered as we discuss the Divine.
We queered the text from John 3:14-21 which holds one of the most, if not the most famous verse in the Bible. But we talk more about darkness and light, people’s actions and how complicated they are.

Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so must the Human One be lifted up so that everyone who believes in him will have eternal life. God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him won’t perish but will have eternal life. God didn’t send his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him isn’t judged; whoever doesn’t believe in him is already judged, because they don’t believe in the name of God’s only Son.
“This is the basis for judgment: The light came into the world, and people loved darkness more than the light, for their actions are evil. All who do wicked things hate the light and don’t come to the light for fear that their actions will be exposed to the light. Whoever does the truth comes to the light so that it can be seen that their actions were done in God.”
