Turning to one another

Turning to one another. Peace. I really have in mind the Hebrew shalom: safety, prosperity.

Turning to one another: What can it mean? Literally, we face each other. We trust each other. We contend with one another. But we are together, for that is where our growth comes—in the between. That is where our health and wholeness exists.

So “we” are not so much about “together” as meeting in between. We face each other, for whatever comes of it. There is a shared event, a common fruitfulness, which leads to our individual fruitfulness and back again.

Is that not what we want is to be fruitful? Is that not what we seek when we are included, and what we miss when excluded?
