Talking Notes – Poverty

A Journey of Transformation

Debilitating burnout, a pandemic raging across the world, me moving internationally twice in two years, gaining and losing full time employment, have all been part of the last three years of my life. In the midst of all of that, I experienced feeling closer to God than ever before in my life. While I can say that I have known God for a significant amount of my life, this closeness was qualitatively different. There was a kind of casual conversational aspect to my relationship with God that I hadn’t had before. I used to pray with questions and for solutions. Now I experienced wonder as the entry point, and discovery as the experience. In the midst of this there was specific revelation. That’s just a fancy way of saying that God showed me specific things. One of those things was that the beatitudes, a series of propositions that Jesus is documented as making in the book of Matthew and echoed in the book of Luke, was somehow more than just a list. This is what we’re getting into this week.
