Reflections on Faith and Community
In this blog, you will find weekly reflections on life and faith. My hope is that, in some way, they will prove helpful to you in your daily living. May God bless you on the spiritual journey.
Andrew S. Odom
There is no greater act of shared experience than the act of God emptying himself and becoming one of us. In that act, God gives us the gift of shared experience with Christ. Christ poured out his own life for us so that, in turn, we may experience Christ’s life. In other words, something in us changes, and we end up feeling closer to God. We gain empathy for one another because God has empathy for us. We can share in one another’s experience and grow in that sharing because God shares in our experience. This is the gift we are given. This is the gift we can give.
