It hit me hard during Easter week: we preach on what is invisible.
Jesus’ resurrected body? These days, invisible. The Holy Spirit? Invisible. The promise of life after life? Invisible.
No wonder people often struggle to accept what preachers say and what churches teach. No wonder I often struggle to accept what preachers say and what churches teach.
In a world that values empirical data, in a culture built on images on-screen, we in the church face an uphill climb.
It’s a never-ending journey to make the invisible . . . tangible. Tactile. Dare I say it? Even visible.
It’s also a good time to remember the God-breathed words of 2 Corinthians 4:18:
So we fix our eyes not on what is see, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
