Touchdown

Travelling is not as exciting for me as it used to be — the organising and packing, the waiting on train platforms, airport lounges, traffic jams — but arriving is very exciting. It doesn’t really hit me until I’m out of the airport and on to the S-bahn. The adventure has begun.

The excitement is a kind of engagement. I am soaking up the language, the people, the food and drink. Exploring the city after dark (looking for somewhere to eat) and coming across church after church, large and small, intact, preserved, and in ruins. Enjoying interactions with the locals as we dance between German and English.

Engagement is a kind of dance, dance is a kind of harmony. I think of following Jesus as trying to bring myself into harmony with God. Until writing this today I had thought of harmony as static like a chord, a pair of strings that resonate together. But harmony can be dynamic and active. My every action can glorify the Lord. It’s a dance I dance with Jesus, as I bring my living into harmony with His.
