We employ human terms to communicate who God is to one another. But God uses not only words, pictures and images, but Jesus, the Word become flesh and dwelling among us. We look for ways to express who God is, and here God is among us in Jesus Christ, feeding, forgiving, healing and reconciling.
Remembering our past helps us to appreciate and not take for granted "the mighty acts of God through Christ Jesus." We did not belong. Our relationship with God is not a right, but a gift.
