"When you first arrive at the hospital, they often hook you up to an I.V. At first, the only thing running through your veins is saline water. No medicine. But the preparatory work has been done. Just in case something goes wrong. That's how it should be in the church. We should do the preparatory work with one another so that the groundwork of relationship has been established. In case something goes wrong." ~Jonathan Watt
I've been walking around this week with visions of us all held close to one another by I.V lines. Tethered. Forced to deal with false-assumptions and hurts and misunderstandings by virtue of our proximity. And I like it.
