We stand on the shoulders of their faith

127.jpg  Faith by Rassouli

 

Abraham! Joseph! Moses! Mary! Jesus!

We whisper their names in awe and wonder

becoming aware of their stories

and the creative power of their faith

standing alone in a call from a Voice

within their hearts

sometimes asking the impossible

following love in dreams and visions

that no one could prove

Yet they were launched on a mission

they could not explain

only knew they must follow

one step at a time

moment by moment

a journey

that changed everything

looking for a new way of living

in the kingdom of the soul

A God of Love has infinite faces

knowing our hearts

and longings

our possibilities

Love awakens and empowers

the spirit to move us

into the great arms of belonging

and belovedness

We stand on the shoulders of thousands

who followed a call

of those who were moved by faith

to help create a new world

of freedom

to become a seeker

an explorer

a pilgrim of wonder

in the magnificent light

and glorious mystery

of the wilderness of God
