Sayings of Saints: Amma Theodora

Psalm 139:1-12 “Sayings of Saints: Amma Theodora”

Amma Theodora tells the story of a monk who thought if he left his monastery he would leave all his troubles and struggles behind, but he discovers this is not the case. There was something he was not considering. Amma Theodora’s word to us is “Wherever you go, there you are.” In this message we discover that we cannot run from our own issues and there is usually more to be learned by ‘staying’ than ‘leaving.’ Not only can we not outrun ourselves, but thankfully, God gladly finds us wherever we find ourselves.
