With roots

whatever you have to say, leave
the roots on, let them

And the dirt

Just to make clear
where they come from ~ Charles Olson, These days

What do you notice?

Digging ones heels…

“America does not honor the quiet work that develops spiritual root systems and community stability. To avoid being swept along by the winds of change and conducting a ministry that is mostly improvisation, one must stubbornly dig one’s heels into the ground”. Eugene Peterson, Five Smooth Stones for Pastoral Work

I highlighted this quote years ago. Somehow it still speaks to me, yet I yearn for the winds of change and currently ministry is much improvisation.

How does this quote sit with you?
