Sea Change

A profound or notable transformation. Shakespeare was the first to coin it, a word that’s now become a buzzword for companies seeking a radical paradigm shift. Through prayer, this word has come to us as a way that reflects how God is changing us as a people; we are becoming more and more his church. This is the work of the Holy Spirit and we are learning to yield more and more into his ways, echoing the words of Isaiah: Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise. (Isaiah 43:18-21) We hunger for such new things in us. We hunger for more of the Spirit’s ways for those we’re among We long for a “change wrought by the sea.”
