The more in touch we become with our belovedness, the more passionate we become about God and all that God has created. We become passionate about who we are, how we reflect God’s sacred image, and who God calls us to be in the world. We become passionate about the world, wanting to care for and nurture other people and all creation.
—Kristen E. Vincent, We Are Beloved: A Lenten Journey with Protestant Prayer Beads (Upper Room Books, 2019)
