If you are on an authentic journey, you’ll spend a fair amount of time in a dark wood, where the true way is wholly lost. But it’s all right, because lost is a place too. John the Baptist shows us what to do when we are in the place called lost, and how Jesus might feel about our time spent in the dark night of the soul.
2 When John, who was in prison, heard about the deeds of the Messiah, he sent his disciples 3 to ask him, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?”
4 Jesus replied, “Go back and report to John what you hear and see: 5 The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.”
Matthew 11: 2-5
