Advent Word 8 - Speak

Posted by Rob McClellan on

When in the beginning God created, God spoke...

          God didn’t pick up a hammer

          God didn’t whip up a chemical stew with beakers and test tubes

                   God spoke

God said, “Let there be...” and there was.

“Let there be” as if something were trying to be.

That’s the way it is.  Life, creation, it’s always trying to emerge and 

          Rather than make it be, often we just have to let it be.

So many are trying to speak,

          Long-silenced by those whose ears are not in the mood to hear and have too much power to care much about it.

          Speak, that what is trying to be created through them might see the light of day.

          God said, “Let there be light.” 

Speak.  That’s the best invitation we can give to others.

It’s not to speak for them.  Let them speak.  Let them have light.  Let them be light.

We, in all our power, have this way of feeling powerless, as if in this great big world we cannot do anything.

But we can speak and in our speaking we can create.

What will you create today in your words?
