Eucharisteo is how Jesus, at the Last Supper, showed us to transfigure all things - taking the pain that is given, giving thanks for it, and transforming it into a joy that fulfills all emptiness.
"Why did it seem that when a person really started listening to God, others assumed that person had gone off the deep end? Maybe because God does lead us into unusual places." -From The Search by Suzanne Woods Fisher
"God doesn't convict us of sin just to make us feel guilty. Conviction is meant to move us to confession and repentance. After confession comes forgiveness. It's like the sun shining after the summer storm. There is peace and joy to be found in God." -from The Waiting by Suzanne Woods Fisher
