As I consider the young folks who are affirming their faith this coming week, this from the "Daily Grace" blog through the Women of the ELCA spoke to me:
Adapted from Psalm 34, the hymn “Taste and See” (This Far by Faith, Augsburg Fortress) offers rich lyrics that can be useful in exploring a healthy relationship with God and with food. “Eating” and “tasting” mean different things: Eating involves the physical action of food consumption. However, it is when we taste, that we fully experience the food. Likewise, in our relationship with God, we can go through the activities of prayer, reading, singing, but it is when we are fully engaged and present that we truly taste the goodness of God. This message is an excerpt of “Taste and See” by Tiffany C. Chaney from the December 2016 issue of Cafe.
Being a follower of Jesus, a Christian, is more than simply going through the motions. Every day I learn more about what that really means. And every day I am grateful for God’s goodness!
