Rev. Karin Kennedy Hejmanowski

There is no hint of self-sufficiency here. The life of faith is constant receiving and letting go, never holding or possessing. We look to God for strength and not to ourselves. The request for strength is a countercultural word, because it acknowledges our neediness before God, who is “merciful and gracious ...abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.”
—Herbert Anderson reflecting on Psalm 86:11-17 in Daily Feast
