In the Spring Woods

100_1046

In the spring woods, listening to the water dancing,

we can see more clearly to the other side

a spirit vision through the water,

bringing healing

through the mist

of battle scars.

What Would He Say?

20170503_164915

If God himself came down to bring judgment on our nation what would He say to the rich attempting to remove healthcare from the poor?

Many with pre-existing conditions?

What would He say to leaders still putting brown children in cages?

What would He say to White Nationalists, some in government or even in media, continuing to spread hatred, inciting violence?

What would He say to leaders refusing to acknowledge the devastation of our climate changing, putting us all in danger and in harm’s way?

What would He say to a leader that lies about paying off women to keep quiet, about having sex with them?

And most of all what would he say to the people calling faith their home, as they bow down to their vulgar conservative idol, doing all they can to protect him, simply because he is called conservative?

What in heaven’s name would God say?

It’s Always Good to Fall in Love

20180424_135024

In March it’s ok to let your hair get blown all over the place,

tossed by the wind

and to relish a light spring rain,

and then smile as the sun begins to appear,

gently caressing your cheek,

and it’s always good to fall in love

in March, walking together

as the tulips begin their journey of color.

Yes in March, it’s ok,

in fact it’s very good indeed.

A Vision of Hope and Unity

20181017_151012

We each need to feel loved and accepted don’t we? Especially in this time, in this world in which we live,

we need to respond in the opposite spirit of hate.

White Nationalists create fear of the other and hateful rhetoric, even in these United States.

Let us stand together offering acceptance of people,

even those different than ourselves, with a vision of hope and unity.

I’m standing with immigrants, and all victims of violence, in our world.

Amen.
