SPIRIT AND PLACE


There's an unmistakable connection between our place and our calling

I drive through the city
still dressed up for Christmas,
though some decorations sag,
and think about what is
going on in its life
and mine and how they
weave and sync
together.

We are given to a place and
it is given to us if we are
willing to see, to hear, to feel it.
We give and receive, and
there is an exchange
of life for life until we
relate and link identities
in an inseparable dance
of grace.


What shape or form this dance takes
over time may not be something of 
our choosing so much as
an attentive response to people
interacting with this unique place.
Am I willing to continue
to make such a response,
to serve wherever for the sake
of hope?
