John 7: 1-2,10, 25-30

We tend to forget that Jesus was thrown out of holy places, literally thrown out of the synagogue because people disagreed with him. We too are just as likely to look in the wrong places for Jesus. We tend to think he is found only in places marked as holy, cathedrals and in beautiful stained glass chapels and churches. He is, however, just as likely to be found in an impoverished day care center or a food bank for the poor. Jesus is everywhere. How we envision/understand Jesus Christ will determine if we see him in daily life and where do we recognize him. It is amazing how many miss the presence of Jesus because of their narrow understanding of Jesus.
