Be Living

I am honored today to share this poem written by my friend, Steve Garnaas-Holmes, who has lived his entire life at “The Edge“.  His words say it all:

BE LIVING

Grace and Peace to you,

 

 

For what will it profit you to gain the whole world and forfeit your life?  Indeed, what can you give in return for your life?” —Mark 8. 36-37

 

 

What is most precious

can’t be taken from you.

 

What is most worth seeking

you already have.

 

You are not a fortress,

you are a soul.

 

Don’t be a thing —

be living.

 

Live in your own life,

not this other stuff.

 

When you live in loving kindness

you trade your whole world

for a greater one.

 

The heart is bigger

than the rest of the world.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deep Blessings,

Pastor Steve
