When people come to us in the midst of their pain, how dare we flippantly quote some Bible verses as if that alone would help?
How dare we think we can just send them some balloons?
How dare we over spiritualise or be like the mum who told her daughter the rape was her fault?
That’s not what Jesus did.
He rolled up his sleeves and got involved.
He suffered alongside us.
He came near.
The cross is God’s way of saying, ‘Me too.’
