unpacking a nugget of truth

Today I have spent a good amount of time unpacking my ministry box, full of papers from conferences past, notes I have taken at seminars, and various worship bulletins with lots of notes in the margins. I have loved looking at them again, my heart full of anticipation.

Today I unpacked a poem I first heard at a conference in Indianapolis. The conference was headlined by Parker Palmer. Its a poem by David Whyte. A gem.

Loaves and Fishes

This is not
the age of information.
This is NOT
the age of information.

Forget the news
and the radio
and the blurred screen.

This is the time
of loaves
and fishes.

People are hungry
and one good word is bread
for a thousand.

Amen.
