My friends, that is the invitation to us today. To draw close enough to hear God’s loving invitation to us into fullness of life. To be grasped by Jesus’ steady hand, giving us the strength to face our lives honestly. To walk together through the challenges and stumbling blocks that beset us. To see the face of Jesus in all those around us. To learn to live into the love of God and neighbor that makes our lives truly rich.
