Tapestry of love…

As part of Sunday morning’s church service,
we (silently) prayed our way through Colossians 2:2.

I was struck by the phrase that says;
“I want you woven into a tapestry of love”
(from The Message)

And I could imagine the sense of belonging
that could come from people
easily seeing where they fitted
in the tapestry of life, of love, of community.

In unfinished tapestries
you can clearly see where the thread will go
because the colours are printed onto the fabric below.

How nice it could be
for people to so be welcomed,
to so feel the potential for belonging…
because they can see their colour printed
on the tapestry
and know it is waiting for them
to be stitched into it.

How can we create communities
where such is the sense of belonging?
How can we help people
to see the unique colour of their thread?

Sounds like a life’s work!

Isn’t it comforting to know that the Master Weaver (like on a persian rug) weaves even the mistakes his apprentices make into something beautiful and becoming?
