We at Third Chance Ministries want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
This is our prayer for you in this season and in the new year:
May the Father prepare a feast for you in an unexpected place that somebody else calls home.
May our Lord unite you to unexpected people and bind your life to theirs so that their good is your good and their suffering is your suffering.
May the Spirit lead you to open your own life and heart to a world in desperate need of love and hospitality.
May the Father guide you into all righteousness and show you the power of justice rightly administered.
May our Lord teach you the value of listening silence in the face of brokenness and the power of mercy wildly distributed.
May the Spirit give you not only words to say, but also silences to keep and may you know the difference between justice and mercy.
May the Father continually call you one step further than you’re comfortable and continually surprise you with the depths of God’s love.
May our Lord simplify your life and frustrate your best laid plans if they don’t bring you closer to him.
May the Spirit mend the broken parts of you and soothe you when you’re worn and sore from God’s holy formation.
Merry Christmas from the staff of Third Chance Ministries (Josh, Bruce, Ben, and Tracy) and thank you for your continued support of Third Chance Ministries and its effort to develop and support missionaries and leaders among the homeless, near-homeless, poor, addicted, and hungry.
