We are not so much called to bring God to a place but to point out that God is already there. In Ron Bell's words,
"So the issue isn't so much taking Jesus to people who don't have him, but going to a place and pointing out to people there the creative, life-giving God who is already in their midst...
... Tour Guides are people who see depth and texture and connection where others don't. That is why the best teachers are masters of the obvious. They see the same things we do, but they are aware of so much more. And when they point it out, it changes the way we see everything."
(from pages 88 & 89 of Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell)
I am going to be a Tour Guide today! Happy Blessed Travels!
(I will be posting pictures from my Spring Break soon! Before you get too excited -- the only thing topless will be my glue stick and hung over will be my latest mixed media art hanger)
