Everyone is broken. Everyone has wounds. But when we come together, when we connect, when we are healers and advocates for each other, God’s love becomes our love, too. All our brokenness can receive healing through God’s love and our togetherness—in the body of Christ, in the body of this world and in our own individual physical bodies.
God’s intention for us is abundant life. Yet we often fall into scarcity thinking about ourselves, about others, about our world. Our scars don’t go away, but they do not define us. The cross defines us. God rebuilds us.
This message is an excerpt from “The scars under our ashes” by Elizabeth Hunter in the March 2019 issue of Café. Today is the sixth Sunday of Easter.
