GO WITH THE FLOW
Further on the theme of "living water" that God offers us through Jesus, that God is, I came across this poem that has its own evocative power:
Every now and then take your soul to the river.
Notice the things the river things -
ducks, seaweed, canoes, broken branches, you.
Notice too what it takes away ...
live things and dead things too,
all afloat in a passing water parade.
Wind inseparable from water, feel it
penetrate your skin.
Heed the pull of every current
curling a finger, calling your name, taking you with it
wherever it will.
Wendy Romero, Presence (Vol.20, N0. 4), page 31
Putting God's realm first was what Jesus commended. Another way of phrasing that is: "Pay full attention to what God is doing right now". S o, what is God doing right now in your life? What is the invitation? What are the possibilities. We are asking the same questions about Marshall Memorial as a congregation. Let the Spirit speak.
