The 2 hands of God
Everyone has two hands, right? Well, almost everyone, unless you were caught stealing in the East - then you would only have one hand. So, does God have 2 hands then? The early Church teacher Irenaeus of Lyons claimed that humanity is instructed by the "two hands" of God.
He was not referring to literal hands, but to the Word and the Holy Spirit. It is through these two hands that we understand the will and purpose of God and how we grow in our faith.
How are God's two hands leading you this Lent?
Are we allowing ourselves the time and space to reflect on the Word, while encouraging the Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth?
Living in Grace,
