Let’s DO this! …
At a certain time, say, 7:00 pm Friday night, we all just walk out of the building we are in. Just out.
Just for a few minutes.
Not rally, not speeches, not organized.
Talk to neighbor. Just OUT.
Ready to move on.
Beyond putting one another down to feel raised up.
Beyond pitting one against another.
Beyond destroying this Earth that holds us.
Together we stand.
I stand here, next to you.
You stand there, next to me.
Person by Person. Neighborhood by neighborhood.
City by City.
Land by Land.
We, the people.
~ Magi Treece
“Jesus came for a far more radically transforming purpose than to serve as a role model. Jesus came to invite us into a living relationship with him, to abide, live and move in his spirit, as the branch abides in the living vine. Just as the bird does not imitate the air or the fish imitate the water, but rather they abide in their life-giving element, so are we to live in Jesus and Jesus live in us.” ~ Flora Slosson Wuellner
What is your “life-giving element”?
Where do you settle in with a deep sigh
and say, ah, everything I need is here.
Now, I am clicking, the ideas are coming,
the world is starting to make sense because
I can see myself as I am and know my place in it.
I can drink to quench my thirst
and breathe to inspire my mind,
I can gulp my sustenance
and wriggle free of my stiffness.
I can soothe my own soul.
Such a place of flourishing
is this space of abiding,
I in Him and He in me.
What’s your place of abiding?
