Sometimes God speaks through poems.
This poem was posted as a blog on elephant in December and was quite popular.
Here’s a video of me reading it at at worship service held at CU’s Wesley Chapel in Boulder, CO.
I hope you like it.
Not the best camera angle (an audience member filmed it on a FlipCam), but it gets the point across I think.
Here’s a clip of me being interviewed after distributing water, juice, and snacks to protestors and police officers at an Occupy Denver event last fall.
The poem was inspired by events at the end of last year. My prayer is that fervor and passion for engaging our spirituality, embodying our faith, and pursuing justice will be a part of this year too.
