The invitation…

into the dryness

and the dullness of our days

he comes,

entering softly into the

places where

our hearts have

greyed for want of

his colour and light,

seeking out

the hidden places

where we hide from ourselves,

from the lies we tell and are told,

the lies

that we are unworthy,

 unwanted,

unforgivable,

tainted,

he comes, calling our name,

your name, my name,

calling and drawing,

scattering light,  pointing to life,

tapping his feet

to heavens deepest melodies

he comes, and held in his hand

is a cup of new wine,

not to dull , deceive ,

nor to

 anesthetise our senses, but

overflowing with healing and health,

come drink, come dance,

come enter in,

here is life

overflowing, everlasting

ever full…

Party 1

 

The Word was first,
the Word present to God,
God present to the Word.
The Word was God,
in readiness for God from day one.

 Everything was created through him;
nothing—not one thing!—
came into being without him.
What came into existence was Life,
and the Life was Light to live by.
The Life-Light blazed out of the darkness;
the darkness couldn’t put it out.

 

The Life-Light was the real thing:
Every person entering Life
he brings into Light.

 The Word became flesh and blood,
and moved into the neighborhood.
We saw the glory with our own eyes,
the one-of-a-kind glory,
like Father, like Son,
Generous inside and out,
true from start to finish.

(From John 1: The Message)

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, and 2 lovely granddaughters). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!
