On Sunday's family Service there is a wonderful little liturgy which I will be using which underlines this beautifully using John 21:1-18. Here it is (courtesy of Susan Sayers' Living Stones resource book):
Leader: My child, where are you?
All: Here I am, Lord, right beside you.
Leader: That is not the person I know and love.
Where is the real you, my child?
All: Here I am, Lord. Surely you recognise me now.
Leader: I recognise the face you wear, but where is the real you that I love?
All: Suppose I showed you and it was unacceptable?
Leader: It is the real you that I love.
All: Then just as I am, O Lamb of God, I come!
