As I looked over Henri Nouwen's The Wounded Healer this morning, I came upon a most impactive comment.  No man can stay alive when nobody is waiting for him....A man can keep his sanity and stay alive as long as there is at least one person who is waiting for him.  Simply profound.

One of God's turning points at Memorial Drive was our study of the one another verses.  Build up one another.  Love one another. Encourage one another.  On the list goes.  Power.  Meaningful.


The Creator, the Savior, the Leader, the Strengthener, of course, are found in the indescribable God-head.  Yet, the body-builder is found in the interaction of the body parts tending to one another in support; in supply of energy and assurance.

As much as there is proper and needed call for us to acknowledge the head of the church, him being Jesus, there is also deep need for the body to move from atrophy to health.  This would come about because each body part fits, belongs, and strives to participate in the body language of the whole.

We all matter.  Each is key.  Do not underestimate the supply of God flowing through you.  Someone(s) will die if they do not find that someone is waiting for them.
