Presence and touch


The most important gestures of love do not involve words.  They involve presence and touch.  Words can interpret, augment, amplify and clarify such gestures.  But they can almost never substitute for them.  If ministry gets presence and touch wrong, there is little that words can do.  If ministry gets presence and touch right, words can come naturally.
