Unstoppable Spirit

Hovering over waters and
Adam’s first breath,
Olive branch bearer
and Column of Cloud.

Wisdom of Prophets and
Kindness of kings.

Miraculous signs
and behind the scenes

Peace of Mary
Bird at Baptism
Joy of Jesus.

Helping healer and
Last breath prayer.

Earth quaker,
curtain cracker.
Son Resurrector,
and Apostle assurer,

Sustainer through shipwreck
Outlaster of Empires,

Future inspirer and past pardoner
Table setter and kingdom gardner.

love
joy
peace
patience
kindness
goodness
faithfulness

the Trinity traits of

The Unstoppable Spirit.

Unbeatable Son

The unbeatable Son,
He’s the one, who came
to meet us again in our garden,
He put aside what we’d done,
to become a part of His own creation.

When God became humanity,
The risk of love through empathy.
As a Baby.

Into a difficult nation full of complication,
Somewhere between the Romans and Religion
With only a barn to keep him from harm.

He grew up in a world where he
could not just see, - but feel
the best and worst parts of what it is
to be like you or me.

With the love of the Father
At one with the Spirit,
He came to live life
and he came to give it.

A carpenter by trade,
fishing on the side,
Interesting and integral
He inspired beggars, leppers and tax collectors,
To turn around live for others.
The upside down kingdom.

Rebuked by the religious and
Rejected by the rest.

Teased. Tempted. Tortured.

Then put to death,

But

Three days later,
he was back in the garden,
living and breathing
the same as he had done

Beach Barbecue breakfasts
Walking, eating and drinking.
he continued his teaching,

King of a better Kingdom.
Anointing us to adventure.

2014 years on
and he’s still not dead.
But the best is yet,

He’s coming back.

Again.

The unbeatable Son.

Unfathomable Father

He who’s hands hewed us from dust,
Must know us very well indeed,
How we love, live and bleed.
Through our luck and deed his love helps breathe.

It seems insanity that he who made me, treasures me,
Despite my profanity.

What a mystery!
That he who seems “so out there”
Lives in me and you,
To renew us from mess to reflection.

How far from the rejection
We’ve come to expect from everywhere else we’ve looked?

When the king of heaven
Makes able to join us
At the table.
Breakfasts, lunch, dinner,
Me and you,
Forgiven over food,
The sinners.

Passionately powerful
And powerfully passionate
Our father is unfathomable.

Gracejon


We thank you God, for oceans
For wild sea and salt-air
For sandy shore
For cliffs and coves
And clapboard harbours
Carved out by history.

We thank you God, for paint
For craft and colour
And the wonders
Light can weave
For representation
And revelation
And the revolution
Sparked by the act
Of taking up a brush.

We thank you God, for thin places
Where Heaven touches Earth
As surely as the sky
Rains down on soil
Where the line on the horizon
Is a song of hope
Where your presence presses in
On every side.

While we’re at it God, we thank you
For Whiskey
And pipe tobacco
And deep, acoustic folk music.

We thank you God, for Jon
Who loves all these things
And with us
Loves the life you’ve given
And the world you’ve made
We join with him in saying yes
To the beauty of your world
Without end
Amen.

Wrote this yesterday.. our community meal doubled-up as a celebration of John White’s Birthday - this was our grace in his honour… (via godseesdiamonds)

A birthday grace from my father in law that has it all; whiskey, pipe tobacco, folk music, art, the sea and thin places.

Touched by his ability with words.
