#SevenGratitudes is a weekly practice of thanksgiving. Several of my friends and I take a moment every Friday to search out the ways grace winds itself around our day-to-day. We share these moments in order to revel in the Reality of God’s nearness and love for each of us and, indeed, this whole creation.
Thanks for joining.
This week I am grateful...
1. For Wonder Woman.
As my friend Laura said earlier this week, I did not know how much I needed a movie like Wonder Woman until I saw it. I am thankful for the empowerment of watching a female person discover the fullness of her identity, the complexity of humankind, and just how she will respond in her god-given vocation with strength, dignity, truth, and love.
It was deeply moving, in a way that superhero legends can only be, to see a woman rise mightily to reckon with the world for the sake of the good. A woman.
