Greetings from WellSpring

This coming Sunday some will celebrate Pentecost as a reminder of the time following the death of Jesus when many people gathered in one room, probably seeking comfort from each other in such a troubled time. The story from Acts 2 tell us that they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages as she enabled them. ... they were amazed and astonished because they could understand each other! 

The blessing of being able to listen, and hear, is a gift which draws us beyond the barriers that often divide. It is a gift we treasure and a blessing which brings new life. 

 
When We Breathe Together
This is the blessing
we cannot speak
by ourselves.

This is the blessing
we cannot summon
by our own devices,
cannot shape
to our own purposes,
cannot bend
to our own will.

This is the blessing
that comes
when we leave behind
our aloneness,
when we gather
together,
when we turn
toward one another.

This is the blessing
that blazes among us
when we speak
the words
strange to our ears,

when we finally listen
into the chaos,

when we breathe together
at last.
