Stuff Lingers Just Outside Our Explanations

Leviathan: Run. Or not.

Him: “Our biker friend crashed pretty bad. We went to see her in the ICU.”

Her: “All the bikers said they were praying and thinking about her. One gal wrote on the web page she was ‘sending her best wishes’.”

Him:  “You know, ‘We’re sending you energy.’”

Her: “But we came in with words from the Spirit. They know we are Christians and bikers. Lots of people ask us to pray because it’s no big churchy thing. We just stop and pray for people wherever we are.”

Him: “We just try to tune in to what God is saying when people ask us to pray.”

Her: “We spent time with her. We prayed. We hung around.”

Him: “It felt substantial. Like something had happened.”

What happens in a conversation? What happens when God shows up?
