But we miss the deepest blessing of prayer, of life with Jesus: that is, Jesus himself. Jesus is calling us: “Sit down a while. Eat with me.”
Today, God speaks to us in many and various ways: through prayer and worship, through theology and study, through the voices of Christians, through the world. And we would be foolish to ignore any of these good voices.
Life is a disorienting experience. Ideas, leaders, and movements come and go. Places we knew change, people we know leave. Just one phone call or headline is enough to convince us that the safety we take for granted is an illusion.
