Philip and the eunuch

         The Spirit said to Philip,
         “Go over to this chariot and join it.”
                   —Acts 8.29

Someone is seeking.
         Walk alongside them.

Someone is wondering.
         How can they learn
         unless you wonder with them?

The sheep led to slaughter, who is that?
         Look around you.
         They suffer every day.

Someone is eager to understand.
         Be prepared to say what you know.

Someone is making their way through the wilderness.
         Here is everything you need.
         What is to prevent you from bathing them
         in the infinite, flowing grace of God?

Those you touch may not return the favor.
         Whatever tasks are completed
         there is always more rejoicing to do.

You will find yourself swept away to new places.
         Let the Spirit take you,
         full of joy and good news.
