Question for reflection:
“The Jesus in Me Loves the Jesus in You” is often sung at Church of the Brethren intercultural gatherings. As we sing, we move from person to person, holding their hands as we acknowledge that we see Jesus in each other. It is energizing to connect with each other and Jesus in this way. How do you open your heart to see Jesus in others? Can you hear and receive what they have to share?
Prayer for the day:
Lord, help me to be open to hearing and seeing Jesus in others. Help me, also, to be Jesus’ compassionate presence to others.
