Even though He is God..... He is still a person.
Even though He created all the stars in the sky out of nothing..... He is still a person.
Even though He changed the entire course of history..... He is still a person.
Perhaps it is possible to create friendships by mail, or online or by telephone.
Perhaps, more likely, real relationships with real people require a real presence.
God is a real person who desires an intimate closeness with us - the kind of closeness that involves seeing and touching, the kind of closeness that brings two people into genuine communion.
At Communion, in every truly spoken "Amen," we acknowledge God not as an abstract concept, but as a loving God who is still very much a real person.
