It seems like it’s in those moments when life is humming along quietly, that we stumble headlong into a firestorm: our emotions swirl; the shock of chaos sweeps us off our feet; we stammer, hurl words or hide in burning silence. We can’t fathom how it all happened. Did we do something wrong? And how could they?
God has revealed Himself to us through a rich and varied collection of images; He is the bread of life, the lion of Judah, the good Shepherd, a loving Father and more. No single image or metaphor captures the totality of God’s nature and His relationship with us.
Throughout our lives we’ve experienced expressions, manifestations of the nature, character and work of God through the flawed and beautiful people who have passed through our lives. For each of us, the ways we’ve experienced God through others is completely unique.
