John 7:37 On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”
Our everydays are filled with beautiful and wonderful things but even the most beautiful and the most wonderful things of this world satisfy neither the thirst we have for the Divine, nor our deep desire for Sacred Community. Thirsty, and driven, we search madly for a hidden spring. When we stumble upon this hidden spring, or when God gracefully leads us to it, a much deeper understanding is born within each of us as we thankfully drink. A much bigger painting is revealed to us. Its living color points us towards a God who completely loves, embraces, satisfies, and challenges. This amazing painting hangs there, quietly, living on the face of today, and begs us to keep painting it together. This is Divinity; this is sacred community. We all thirst for these things, deeply. Our thirst is satisfied as we drink from a hidden spring.
