JESUS COMES to each one of us through his Spirit, walks alongside us, and desires to enter into conversation with us. He wants to know about the dark thoughts and feelings in our hearts. He opens our minds to words of scripture so that they speak directly and personally to our situations. He makes himself known to us as bread is broken and wine is poured. In moments like these, our hearts also begin to burn again with new faith and hope and love.
