The first half of St John’s gospel is referred to as the Book of Signs. Jesus’ words and deeds are signs of the presence of God in our midst. For the Fourth Evangelist those signs promote belief. The signs of the presence of God continue to surround us. How can you not be filled with awe when looking at a sunset, holding a newborn child, listening to Mozart. But these awesome experiences are not signs of the presence of God until you reflect upon them. It is not experience that leads to insight but reflection on experience. Keep alert to the experiences that move you throughout the day. Then spend some time reflecting on those experiences and see how they serve as signs of God’s presence for you.
