A preacher’s morning thought (epiphany)

I am getting my starlight on to go preach,
settling it on my shoulders,

and somewhere between lamplighters
in Victorian England
and the LED displays of some football stadium,

I hope it sheds a little path-forward
for just one person
who is stumbling away from Christmas
without having found any place
to set down the burden of gifts,

or truly believing they have any to offer.

    Maren, your starlight shed a glow on my congregation this morning, the gathered light of your Water Pouring Advent wreath. Several people muttered about having something to think about. We have need of Living Water at this time of year, not so much Light of the world, as the daylight is too bright and the danger of bushfires too close. David Haas’ song ‘As water to the thirsty’ added a beautiful quiet interlude for reflection. Thank you for your generous sharing of your own inner landscape and the bright collection you hoard until its needed. Blessings for the year ahead. Christine

    Thank you Christine and I love Haas’ song. May it be a year of Living Water for you! (And I am looking forward to the next time you share something through my blog!

  3. Love this Maren!
