Through all those teachers, parents, pastors, grandparents, and friends, God was speaking. God spoke directly Abraham, to Noah, to Moses and through Aaron, through silence, and even a donkey, through prophets like Jonah, Jeremiah, Micah, Isaiah, Ezekiel, and others. God is still speaking, and like so many before us, we fail to listen. We can get discouraged and shut our ears and our hearts. We struggle to focus on anything but our own feelings, the pain we see in the world, or the hatred and division in our communities. We distract ourselves by any means necessary in order to survive. We can’t see Jesus. Here in this place, we get to meet Him every week.
