Belonging Together

"The community of faith is the place where many stories about the way of Jesus are being told. Thes stories can be very different from each other. They might even seem to conflict.

But as we keep listening attentively to the Spirit manifesting itself through many people, in words as well as in silence, through confrontation as well as invitation, in gentleness as well as firmness, with tears as well as smiles, -- then we can gradually discern that we belong together, as one body knitted together by the Spirit of Jesus."

(from With Burning Hearts, by Henri Nouwen)
