come and see

John 1:46 “Can anything good come from Nazareth?” Nathanael asked.“Come and see,” answered Philip.

1 Kings 19: 11-12:
After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After …… came a gentle whisper.

There was an earthquake; but God was not there.
God was there in the still small voices;
In the hands of strangers who moved buildings brick by brick to free other strangers;
In the comforting hug given by a customer to a frightened shop assistant;
In the students shovelling silt and liquefaction;
In the neighbours, newly connected, sharing food, and water, warmth and comfort;
In the lifts given to unknown people;
In the baking given to workers clearing the streets;
In the passer-by who held the hand of a dying woman;
In the hundreds of kindnesses, small and large, freely given;

Don’t look for God in the earthquake – He is there when we reach out to each other.

(G.W.)
