The Road Ahead
(Posted June 10, 2020)
We're moving on. After the demonstrations. After the Bible waving, and the shoving and the cracking of heads on the pavement. My question is: "We're on the road together, but where to?" We know we cannot turn back. What does God call us to do? What does the Spirit expect of us with the commissioning we've received as disciples?
Whether we like it or not, the Spirit is still here with us, ready to bear us up through the people who will stand in the way of making the world change. This week I share with you Rev. Maren Tirabassi's poetry about the road ahead.

Pentecost has come and gone.
What does it mean to live with the Spirit?
We often say, “It's dark and we can't see where we’re going."
The Spirit replies, “Step into the darkness.
If there is no ground beneath you, I’ll give you wings.”
What happens if we land in the middle of the ocean?
The Spirit says, “I'll teach you to swim.”
What happens if we grow weary of swimming?
The Spirit says, “I’ll show you how to breathe underwater.”
What happens if the breath of others is taken away?
The Spirit says, “Those who have not spoken will speak.
Those who have not listened will listen.
And those who are willing will grow feathers and fins.”
