“The wind blow where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit” (John 3:8).

The life of faith can be an unsettling journey. The man to whom Jesus spoke these words found them to be disruptive to his domesticated existence; threatening to his well-ordered religious life. As much as we seek to tame our lives and settle down in our self-constructed security, the wind of the Spirit continually blows across the heart of our soul; moving us continually in directions we never imagined.
