Mira Sawlani-Joyner: Psalm 139:1-6, 13-14
Play • 12 min

It’s not too early to mark your calendars: we’ll be back with another Advent season, beginning on November 29. I hope you’ll join me, as we wait together for God.

In the meantime, everyone needs some rest from time to time, and so I’m going to be taking a little break. But I would love for you to hear from some of my friends while I’m resting! Starting this week, we’ll have special guest-hosted episodes of We Wonder every week, where you can still listen to God’s good words with some lovely and different voices. And I’ll be listening along with you!


This week's episode features our friend, Mira Sawlani-Joyner. Mira's experience in Children's ministry has spanned the globe, from serving in youth ministry in Australia, to mission trips in South East Asia, South Africa and South America to most recently in leading a virtual VBS from her home in Washington DC. She is on the Launch Team of a LGBTQIA+ affirming community called Resurrection City, DC and a second year Seminarian. When she isn't navigating online learning alongside her three daughters, she finds joy in painting and practicing Yoga.


Today's passage is Psalm 139:1-6, 13-14:


O Lord, you have searched me and known me.

2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up;

  you discern my thoughts from far away.

3 You search out my path and my lying down,

  and are acquainted with all my ways.

4 Even before a word is on my tongue,

  O Lord, you know it completely.

5 You hem me in, behind and before,

  and lay your hand upon me.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;

  it is so high that I cannot attain it.

13 For it was you who formed my inward parts;

  you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

  Wonderful are your works;

that I know very well.
