Who is searching for belonging?
Each week we'll highlight a current event or ongoing story from world and reflect on it through the lens of the gospel. First check out this article linked below.
The pandemic inspired a cartoonist to explore their Wuhanese roots and queer identity
Reflect and Act:
When we see the disciples in this week's story we see a group of people trying to bridge the gap between their lives in ministry with Jesus and their lives in the new world of his resurrection. In the midst of that search they go fishing and find nothing but scarcity, until they listen to the words of a stranger on the beach and try doing things in a different way. And that new way leads to abundance.
In this week's article we hear about Wuhanese American illustrator Lauren Gao's journey of finding their place in the world as an Asian American and a queer person. In their wrestling with identity and their feelings of being out of place in both their hometown of Wuhan and where they were living in Texas, they created a graphic memoir about the search for home; both in themself and in the world. Who are the people in your life or community that are searching for home and belonging? When have you been on this same journey? What is something you can do to support people in your community on this quest? Take some time to share your thoughts with the group.
