One World

Easter Morning – Ninette Sombert

Poem of the One World
mary oliver

This morning

the beautiful white heron

was floating along above the water

and then into the sky of this

the one world

we all belong to

where everything

sooner or later

is part of everything else

which thought made me feel

for a little while

quite beautiful myself.


Dear Community of Christians,

The Christ continues to walk. We hear this very specific, very human activity being done by the Christ in the Act of Consecration. We hear in the epistle for Easter that the Comforter walks in the spirit before us. The one that comforts us on earth.  We are guided by the one that walks before us. Christ knows what it means to be a human being. The Christ Jesus knows what it is to doubt, to wonder, to fear and to bear the unknown. As we all try to sort through what is happening in our daily lives we can look up from time to time and feel in our hearts that we are not alone. May this recognizing the Christ walking before us strengthen our trust in ourselves to follow the path of life we are on.
