It’s the small moments, that remind me why I went into the ministry. It’s the Bible study on Zoom, when only two people log in. Our conversation drifts. We talk about the scriptures, but only a little. We talk more about the moments and stories that make up our lives. It’s the connection I’ve always yearned for.
