You called to Moses from the bush,
On fire and yet unburned.
Still you call to us
From the most impossible place.
You use your unimaginable power
Not to coerce and control
But to liberate.
You allow us to question and to argue
With your unarguable plans,
To draw our own conclusions,
Until at the last we turn
Freely and willingly
To stand on holy ground.
Come, meet with us
In all our unlikeliness,
And assure us of your gentle power.
#adventbookclub runs from 1st December until Epiphany. This year we are using “The Art of Advent” by Jane Williams, and raising some money for Mercy UK, a mental health charity over at the JustGiving page here. Search #adventbookclub on Twitter or Facebook to join in the conversation.
