Where are you hiding?
As children, we all loved the game hide and seek. But what if we stayed hidden so well no one ever found us? The game would lose appeal fast. We didn’t really want to hide so well that nobody could ever find us.
As we grow older things happen to us. People are betrayed, passed over, and sometimes even traumatized. Through these experiences, we learn to hide. Our hiding places are many: Screens, food, work, charities, hobbies. None of these are bad. Only when they become our hiding place do they end up being shelters against risk, relationship, and (most of all) connectedness.
What will it take to once again playfully sing out “come and get me”.
