Water and the Word: Across the Mist


(a riff on 1 Corinthians 13) We are, all of us,

either walking beside

or wading in the river of life.


Now we see

across the mist, dimly;

but when grace arrives

in its fullness,

the sun of love

will cause the mist

to evaporate,

and we shall both fully know

and be fully known.


Help us, Lord,

to use our whole selves —

bodies, minds, and spirits —

and all within our reach —

time, talents, possessions —

to keep the river flowing and fresh

for all God’s children.
