Intimacy

Intimacy  between John the apostle and Jesus led to an awareness of resurrection. It was John who saw the significance of empty tomb and the grave clothes tidied away. For John it was enough, he was able to read the signs of life in the middle of death. As we look at the empty hopes that scatter our day and cling to the grave clothes of the past we might ask John, the apostle of love to help us to draw eternal life from the tombs of our disappointments.
