Everyone you see, you say to them,
Of course you do not do this out loud;
Someone would call the cops.
Still though, think about this,
This great pull in us to connect.
Why not become the one
Who lives with a full moon in each eye
That is always saying
With that sweet moon
What every other eye in this world
Is dying to
*Poem by Hafez, quoted from the book “Tattoos on the Heart”

How is the mystery and wonder of life and light alive in you? What gifts will you choose to give and receive in this season? With Bill Clark, Worship Associate
