Streams for Friday | Wells, Praise Goh
I used to make it a semi-discipline to write out a “stream” of thought every Sunday. It is Friday. I felt I needed one today. There is more lingering in the back of my mind than I realize.
I’ll tell you something. I do not wish to be one who attends memorial services and then cries and holds each other and then forgets. The Fuller community lost an ocean of a woman when Praise Goh died suddenly a few weeks ago. Even those of us who hardly knew her can feel a measure of the distant ripples of pain left by her absence. There is a collective desire to take a deep breath and move on, and that is good. But I would like to always be a space that says remember. However that might work, I want it.
