"Blest be the tie that binds,"
or so goes the old hymn.

This faith-tie,
pouring out in set aside wants,
in de-prioritized social expectations,
in re-prioritized body life,
doing good
for the sake of the Name
to declare the Name
to reflect the Name.

I thank my God always when I remember you in my prayers, because I hear of your love and of the faith that you have toward the Lord Jesus and for all the saints, and I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ. For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you.
Philemon 1:4-7
