Reach Out

Within caring relationships we experience the Source of Life.

Matthew 18:20

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

What if we took these words of Jesus seriously and set aside time to actually gather with two or three others in Jesus’ name?

A one-on-one relationship with Jesus or God or Spirit or the Source of Life would be essential…but I’m thinking it’s also important to get together with a friend or two on a regular basis and to share what’s going on in your lives.

It opens you up to being a compassionate, caring, listening presence to someone you care about.

It also gives them the opportunity to be the same to you.

When that Spirit of Compassion is experienced…you have experienced Christ.

How might each of us make the effort to arrange such regular gatherings?

How might we also open these gatherings to those who are left out…and in most need of community?
