entre vous

Entre vous is French for "between you" or "among you". It means that something is between two or more people. Not on you and on you too, but in your midst. It means sharing, like sharing the Lord's cup in communion (Luke 22.17).

What strikes me is how highly individualistic that we are in our culture. When it says "you", we usually think it means "me" or "I", but it often means "you all"... plural. Stuff does happen to us individually, but it also happens to us communally.

What is between us or what's happening among us? Another way to see it is that when something happens to one person, it affects the rest of us. There's a common sharing, a community.

I'm also thinking about the between space between us and God. What's between us and God?
