Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                 Just as he was coming up out of the water,          he saw the heavens torn apart          and the Spirit descending like a dove on him.                   —Mark 1.10

Immersed in this loving mystery, a great river flowing around you, pulsing as if pumped by a heart, carrying you on, flowing through you, you surrender to it.

You open yourself to the outward surge, yearning of God, upwelling of heaven, washed, nourished, borne.

This river of light flows out into the earth, plunges into soil, circles continents. Erodes great walls, drowns the huge, dark fortress. Green leaves emerge.

You fill the ocean, the one sea, the single tear of God.

Even this one handful waters the world.

                    Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
