Healing does occur, and as we gradually come into right relations with one another, we come into right relations with God. Apology is not the end of the encounter between two peoples but the beginning of a transformed way of being together. And it is in the transformation of our relationship with those we have hurt, that we become whole. Reconciliation is the gift we bring to the altar, if you like.
Spiritual life begins with a change in direction in our hearts and minds. We cannot keep going in the direction of our own choosing and expect to meet God at the end of our journey. If we are going to come to know God, we must turn around and go the other way.
Jesus is urging us to change our direction. To allow our spirituality to be nurtured like a child. To be vulnerable to God, and to let God have sway in our lives. Allow God to nurture us and to care for us.
We thank God that we don’t have to carry the burden of being the great one or the greatest one, we just need to be ourselves, authentic and open to the Spirit’s guidance, moldable to God’s will, like a child to a parent.
