In your silence

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                                        Too long confined in words, I walk into the ocean of your silence, release myself into its spaciousness, beside myself, become that vast, become the sea.

It holds me, bears me safely over rocks of notions and of knowing, safely, tenderly carries me above those shoals of meaning, even, and believing:

what even you can't say, this love too great to fit, too great to even feel.

I can't behold the ocean, the whole sphere of it— only water on my skin, wind on my face, the body of this silence that enfolds me.

Just float. Just give myself, and float.

                    Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
