#adventbookclub Day 20: O Adonai

O Adonai,

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.
