Before Jesus broke the bread, he blessed it. In the age of social media, where people’s lives are curated to show only their best and most beautiful selves, it is easy for an individual person to believe that they are the only one who is broken. The truth is that everyone is broken and in need of God’s blessing. No one has it all together; no person is perfect.
In essays both humorous and achingly vulnerable, author Ryan Casey Waller urges readers to join him in pouring out their brokenness, not just to God but to each other.
Waller takes readers through the trials of following Jesus during seasons of doubt and disbelief, anger, shame, and even hate, but always comes back to the amazing news that Jesus blessed the bread before he broke it. Through Jesus, brokenness is blessed, wounds healed, and hearts made whole.
