The formal freedom of our connectedness
Sometimes, we think that connections are rigid things like organizational charts, with boxes and straight lines. But this is not the case. Trees are an example: their branches and twigs are connected in a way that is always treelike. We recognize the shape as if it were always the same. But in reality, each tree is different. The connections are clearly tree-type connections, but each bears its own individuality.
Our connectedness is like this. we have human-type connections, but each connection bears the uniqueness of those who are connected.
I think of our connectedness with Christ and one another and wonder, what does this look like? Do I take the time to notice?
