My friends Jeff and Kara are keeping a blog journal of their families’ time serving in mission ministry with the UMC of Malawi. After reading one of their latest blogs directly expressing being caught in the tension of “two worlds” during their time in ministry; I went to write a comment and stumbled across this word shared by one of their blog readers and it is a good word.

She writes…
“It’s so good that we serve a God who works in both worlds and completely understands your in between.” M.K.

Grace.

Love.

What a good word for those who feel the tension of the “already but not yet” realities of life… wherever you are.
