We are still being made.
For years and years I have struggled to become the person that I think I might become. I want to be a better Christian, wife, mother, friend, artist,... person! But I keep disappointing myself. Can you identify with me?
Too often we try to go it alone. And when we fail, (which is inevitable), we think that something is wrong with us, some fatal flaw that will not allow us to grown in a certain area, or conquer that sin, or show up for the things that matter to us.
Hope is here.
There is another way. We are on a pilgrimage that will span our whole lives. We will trip along the way—that’s part of the journey. But we have a path worn for us by a great cloud of witnesses, and we can follow it together.
Let me go ahead and say that I do not have all the answers. But I do have a few answers: practices that can help you focus on the things that actually matter, wisdom from writings that will continue to teach you your whole life, stories that enrich the imagination and give us courage to carry on, and Beauty that will not let you go. I’m willing to bet that you have a few answers for me too.
The Yet Untold Fellowship is a place where we can encourage each other on the way. Through spiritual and artistic practices, the magic of stories, and the living metaphor of pilgrimage, we can help keep each other company, and hold each other up, on the way together.
Bottom line: This is about spiritual growth, formation, sanctification, conversion, discipleship…. Whatever you call it, it means that we are growing toward Christ and into whom he has in mind when he looks at us. We are still being made. Our stories are still being written, and they are being written by the God who “writes straight on crooked lines” (Pope Benedict XVI). They are yet untold.
There is a way through. There is hope for the future. And you have friends, right here, hoping right alongside you. (That is not a typo, though “hopping” might be accurate as well.)
Join the Fellowship today.
So, if that sounds like something you’d like to be a part of, continue reading to find out how you can be a part of it. In addition to the Fellowship, or rather, alongside of it, I am offering some materials that can be printed out at home to help you on your journey. There are different levels at which you can join, corresponding to what is included. They are the Fellowship level, Pilgrim level, and Inner Circle, as follows:
The Yet Untold Fellowship
For only four dollars a month you can join the Yet Untold Fellowship. That’s half the price of Netflix, and so much better for you! It’s where we discuss the things that we are practicing, books we are reading, discoveries that have given us hope, and so much more. Within the Fellowship, we are able to get right to the things that really matter and meet with people who share similar goals and values in regards to spiritual formation. If you are a Christian and looking for guidance or resources to help you in the areas of discipleship and spiritual growth, this is a good place to be. If you are a Christian, or someone who is searching, and going through a dark and difficult period of life, this is absolutely where you should be. We want to love on you. If you have questions and want to know more about whether it would be a good fit for you, do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the Pilgrim level, you will gain access to the Yet Untold Fellowship as well as receive resources and illustrated PDFs by email every month. They will coordinate with the Tend Podcast and with the topics we are discussing in the Fellowship. These items are created to help you practice the presence of God at all times, so they might be illustrated quotes or scripture verses, coloring pages, prayer planning sheets, etc.
When you subscribe at the Inner Circle level, you will receive everything at the Pilgrim level and also gain exclusive access to a secret library of resources, prints, coloring pages, labels, stickers, cards, and more, all available for immediate download in PDF format whenever you wish! I add to this page after I have created something new for the shop or for subscribers, so you’ll get it all! The Inner Circle will also be the first to hear about new courses and classes, products and shop updates, and pretty much everything going on around here. In addition to all of this, the Inner Circle will also receive special discounts from time to time.
