'The only constant is change'

“If as Christians we are to win over souls with our love and excellence, we need to embrace the global shift. Now culture is a sneaky thing. It can make person trustworthy or it can stagnant growth or it can misinterpret love,” explains OMer Lenka.

Embracing discomfort

“As I’ve stood in long immigration lines at airports or experienced lengthy delays, I’ve caught myself thinking about the impact of my attitude,” shared OMer Nicole. “When I’m impatient and annoyed, that’s what the people around me see—that’s how I’m representing my life as a Jesus follower.”

A season under the sun

"For me, I have to constantly remind myself that there are many seasons in my life because it helps me to be focused, disciplined, grateful and motivated," shared OMer Ava. "It does this for me because I’m reminded that once the season is over I can never go back to it. I may go through another very similar season but never the exact thing."

Packing 'life bags'

"Growing up, my dad used to share an analogy about the bags we pack in life," explained OMer Renette. "He said parents pack ‘life bags’ for their children, filling each bag with traditions, beliefs, perspectives and stories. The child repacks his/her bag as they interact with the world and have new experiences." What's in your life bag?
