End of the year reflection

05 Jul

A little over a year ago, I had the pleasure of listening to Rev’d Ruth Gee give her address as the newly installed President of the Methodist Conference, a few days ago I had the pleasure of hearing her give the pastoral address at the end of her year of office. And again as the opening address did, this one sparked off a poem. The poem for the opening address was “Expectantly waiting to glimpse God’s glory“, so here is the next one.

Do we … in every sense

Do we glimpse God’s glory
do we see God passing
do we notice glory all around
are our eyes closed?
Do we listen for the voice of God
do we hear God passing
do we hear the still small voice
are our ears stoppered?
Do we taste and know that God is good
do we taste God passing
do we only taste the ash
is our tongue scoured?
Do we smell the sweet, sweet fragrance of God
do we smell God passing
do we mask your fragrance
is our nose bunged up?
Do we feel God near
do we feel God passing
do we still know of your touch
is our feeling numbed?
We can see, hear, taste,
smell and feel God
despite all we do you are ever there
and love us in every sense.
