The Kingdom of Heaven is like…

I recently rediscovered jigsaw puzzles. I picked one up at a thrift store, brought it home and I laid it out on the dining room table hoping others might give me a hand. And they did. We all joined in enthusiastically, at first. This could be fun, I thought. A way to connect that didn’t involve screens. But it wasn’t fun, at least not that puzzle. It was hard and frustrating and painfully slow. The pieces didn’t fit well together. Some sections seemed to click together but they didn’t really connect with the larger picture.
