There are many reasons we might feel isolated these days. The ups and downs of the pandemic have forced us to socially distance and carefully plan our social gatherings, especially large group events. Political and cultural polarization makes us feel like we no longer know our neighbors and family members. And technology, while connecting us on a superficial level, can leave us feeling starved of deep, substantive relationships.

To provide you with a moment of solitude and reflection at the end of this long year, today we’re presenting a ten minute embodied prayer by Liuan Huska, author of the book Hurting Yet Whole: Reconciling Body and Spirit in Chronic Pain and Illness. This episode is designed to be used again and again, so bookmark it. Use it for a moment of calm, whenever you need it. And let us know what you think by sending us a DM on any social channel @WheatonHDI.

(Note to the listener: In this podcast, sometimes we'll have evangelicals, sometimes we won't. We thinking learning how to do good better involves listening to lots of perspectives, with different insights and understanding with us. Sometimes it will make us uncomfortable, sometimes we'll agree, sometimes we won't. We think that's good. We want to listen for correction. Especially in our blind spots.)
