What was your high and low today? Your peak and your pit? We used this question a lot when our kids were younger. We would often ask them on the drive home from school or at the dinner table as a way of checking in with each other. We all experience daily highs and lows but the lowest of lows is known as The Wall or the Dark Night of the Soul. It is when we experience a deep desolation often brought about by a crisis that turns our world upside down. At the Wall, our faith is shaken. We lose energy, hope, and the sense of God's presence. It may be brought about by the death of a loved one, the loss of health via disease or injury, the loss of a job, infertility, betrayal, divorce, a dashed dream or a disillusioning church experience. At the Wall, we question God, ourselves and the church. We do not understand where God is, what He is doing and how long it will last. Many people find themselves stuck at the Wall and are not sure what to do. This week, we will explore how we journey through the Wall and experience the grace God has for us there.
