True Accounts Of Visions, Angels, And Healing Miracles
Late on Maundy Thursday evening, in the year 2000, as I lay in bed, meditating on the format of this book, a thought came into my head that I would be able to see a spirit if I simply looked. I opened my eyes and saw something indescribably beautiful about two feet above my head. It was a bright, luxurious purple, then deep azure blue, radiant, dynamic, pulsating: a being of light and energy moving slowly closer and closer. As it drew near, I tried to communicate through thoughts, asking who or what I was seeing, and the meaning of the visitation. There was no discernable response.

We are all intimately connected as one body in Jesus. Isaiah celebrates our intimate union with our creator, describing us as the joyful bride of God. Though there had been alienation and rejection from both sides in the past, the prophet describes us as God’s delight. That connection is also emphasized in Paul’s oddly graphic description of church folks as body parts — we need each other because we are not a living, breathing body if we are somehow separated.
When Jesus visited a wedding at Cana in Galilee, he showed that human disappointments matter to him and that he would be prepared to redeem them. This is a story about a young girl's bitter disappointment when she became a bridesmaid.
