God dwells. God’s Love dwells. God has moved into our neighborhood, and God will stay.
Jesus is Living Bread, and bread is not a meal for a special occasion. It’s not for a rare event. It’s what we eat each and every day.

Our Psalm calls us to cultivate spaces, and to be people together who are safe, who help each other be fully ourselves, who welcome those around us to be fully themselves, as well. That is how we all find rest.
Jesus Loves us so much that He encourages us to be what He sees in us—which could be more. Painting by Michael J. Card: “Jesus at the Home of Mary and Martha”
