Pastor’s reflection: Great bear

Dearly Beloved,

Grace and Peace to you.

Something deep down
in a dark cavern
Something under thick layers
turns over, moves slowly,
wakes up.
You think it’s a monster
but it’s part of you.
A dream maybe, or a wound,
a hunger, a hope.
You don’t have to know what it is.
It’s part of you. It needs to rise.
Be still. Let it get up, stretch,
move around.
Fearful as it feels, feed it.
Let it hunt. Let it speak.
It will trouble you,
because it is loose.
It is becoming free,
so that you
can be free.
God is a great, dark bear in you,

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
