I was reminded of a phrase from an e-mail...
I'm learning that prayer and communion with God are not only ethereal and mysterious, but they are tangible, physical experiences that sometimes require us taking action to enter into.
I've thought a lot about that last sentence over the years..
Require us taking action to enter into.
It occurs to me that most of our thinking about miracles is formed more by tales of faery godmothers with wands than by people picking up their mats and taking that first step with their friends all around them.
In that e-mail, Justin reminded me of how beautifully God works in community. And how much more effective that can be than wands with animated glitter.
Sometimes there is faith in just tying your shoes.
