Could it be that the way is not as much about reaching a particular destination, as it is about entering into a certain way of being? Could it be that it is not as much about where (or what), as it is about who? Could it be that it is not as much about geography, as it is about relationship? Could it be that we miss the way, as Thomas and Philip did, because we are looking for a place, when we should be looking for a person?
“Show us the way, O Lord,” we pray. And Jesus answers, “I already did show you. I am the way. Live your life in me—whatever you do and wherever you go—and you will already have arrived at your destination.”
