God’s word, God’s presence

LordMyChef “TGIF” Quote, 26 October 2018:

“God’s word is full of God’s presence.  But the full power of the word lies, not in how we apply it to our lives after we have heard it, but in its transforming power that does its divine work as we listen… it is a word to heal us through, and in, our listening here and now.” (Fr. Henri Nouwen, “With Burning Hearts”, pp. 55, 57)
