“You are my beloved”

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         As Jesus was coming up out of the water,
                  he saw the heavens torn open
                  and the Spirit descending like a dove on him.
         And a voice came from heaven,
                  “You are my Son, the Beloved;
                  with you I am well pleased.”

                           —Mark 1. 10-11

Every moment
you are coming into this moment,
coming into this life,

this one,
coming up out of the water,
breathing in, opening your eyes.

Emerging from the womb of God,
everything is being created,
everything is beginning.

The heavens,
the heart of things, torn open
for you,

God’s spirit
your spirit,
breathing in you

and saying: “You are mine,
my child, my Beloved.
In you is my delight.”

What else do you need
to guide you in this new year,
this new life, this eternal life?

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
