Most people encounter God through flesh and blood human beings. A kindness offered. A loving embrace. A hand extended in help. An arm to shelter and protect. A mouth that speaks out for justice. Eyes that see the dignity of each and every human being. Ears that hear the cries of the needy. Hearts that are warmed with compassion. Shoulders that carry one another’s burdens. It is in these very real flesh-and-blood ways, that God is incarnate with us, that God is encountered through us.
