May 21, 2017 | That feeling of being alone can feed on one of our worst fears, that we might wind up alone forever. We’ve all experienced it, to a degree, at one time or another, either during life transitions or while off travelling. It is enough for most of us to learn pretty quickly that we don’t want to end up that way, alone, deprived of family and friends. I believe Jesus’ words today can bring words of comfort, even in the midst of what feels like absence, we are never fully alone: God’s Spirit is with us. Confusing words for Jesus’ disciples but words they will come to understand that they will never be left to fend for themselves.
