Today's reading: III John
...Instead I hope to see you soon, and we will talk together face to face. III John 14 NRSV
There is something wonderful about writing this blog and knowing folks from all over the world can be touched or inspired each day. However, the written word can never replace a face-to-face meeting.
A couple of years ago, I participated in a clergy support group through a ministry called Plowpoint. We were clergywomen from all over the United States and we met bi-weekly via conference call. We did this for a year but our biggest complaint was not being able to see each other's faces. Then, when the year was over, we were given the rare opportunity to meet together all in one place with our coach. What a weekend we experienced! And what joy and powerful grace was felt when we were all able to talk together face to face.
There is nothing like meeting and talking face to face. We may not see each others' faces but I pray for you all and hold you in my heart!
God, thank you for the gift of blogging, especially when it gives us an opportunity to spend more time with you. Help us to appreciate when we meet with other believers face to face. In Jesus' name. Amen.
