Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Oftentimes passion seems to be lacking in individual lives. Circumstances prevent individuals from feeling wanted or even living with a purpose. How does one find purpose and meaning despite the perils of life? How does passion transcend tedium, sameness, and lifelessness to reach completeness, endurance, and nourishment? In Woman Overboard, we peek into the life of one woman’s journey across time, seeing the process of living through the personal lens of the author’s own story.
Through storytelling, author Jo Kadlecek shares what it means to be alive. Using quotations from artists, thinkers, and theologians, she encourages readers to examine their lives and to find their own way into a life lived with passion. Each chapter teaches us how to pursue what it means to nurture a wholehearted, undivided, sensually extravagant engagement with the process of living. Moreover, each chapter does so in the context of the life and death of a man some believe to be the most passionate human to walk the earth—Jesus.
