Bread for the Journey by Henri Nouwen wedding reading

Many human relationships are like the interlocking fingers of two hands…

Human relationships are meant to be like two hands folded together.

They can move away from each other while still touching with the fingertips.

They can create space between themselves, a little tent, a home, a safe place to be.

True relationships among people point to God.

They are like prayers in the world.

Sometimes the hands that pray are fully touching, sometimes there is distance between them.

They always move to and from each other, but they never lose touch.

They keep praying to the One who brought them together.
