Of Names and the Stories they tell
Updated: May 12, 2022
I am so excited to share my inspiration and the story behind naming this business.
A few years ago, I was reading author Tim Keller's book, Generous Justice about God's grace, justice and the call to justice for the poor and oppressed. In one of the chapters, he expounds on "reweaving shalom" in those areas of society where the threads of fabric have been frayed or broken. We can do this, he explains, by weaving ourselves into those areas in society.
Shalom can be best described as wholeness, in the sense of "nothing broken, nothing missing".
A couple of years ago, I participated in a workshop at my local church called Repurposed. During the sessions, we looked back and mapped out significant hinge moments (high and low points) in our lives which pointed us to two words of significance. At the end of this session, the words that emerged for me were "Catalyzing Wholeness".
I believe that as God reweaves the broken and frayed parts of our lives, He calls us to play a part in catalyzing wholeness and reweaving hope in other's lives. The purpose of Rewoven Collective is to empower survivors and those at risk of trafficking and to share their stories of rewoven hope and shalom.
