Sometimes Things Are Hard to Say – Avett Brothers

Words often do not come easy. Not just the three the Avett Brothers sing about. Too often we miss occasions to say what is important. Many reasons fill our minds. Then on occasion they are filled with regret.

Sometimes I wonder how hard it has become for the Church to say to the world, “I, Love, You.” Our cultural battles often leave us finding reasons not to love. And yet, in John 17 when Jesus reminds the disciples he sends them as he is sent we must remember he came to love. Now, what hard time are you having loving those we have been given to love.
