soil…ash wednesday offering

We are body of soil.
Soil, body in potential.
Christ, completion of soil.
Ground of being incarnate.

Soil fully embodied. Soil fully divine.

To nurture soil is
to thank history, our elder.
to nurture future, our child.
to love neighbor, our now.

Holiness of life. What is.

To neglect or abuse soil is
to deny one’s life
to deny one’s purpose
to deny what is holy.

Partners in creation.

Embrace the sacredness of soil.
For it is God breathed.
From it your life has come.
And will one day return again.

Eternity now. Forever present.

Death comes, a returning to soil.
Embrace the beauty of grief.
It is the labor pain of new life.
Seed’s death, fruit’s birth.
Resurrection life breaks open!

Something to chew on…
