Slowly, silently the molten core bursts
Turning everything up side down.
Leaving radical amazement- smoke and ash.
There are streams of Concern at the heart of existence-
bursting forth in places like Bethlehem and Lisbon Falls.
Creation is infused with Divine Concern-
so the Prophets say.
Rouses some of us from sleep –
waking into the Life and Power.
Christ is not Jesus’ last name.
Christ is the Divine Concern-
the Boundless-Source and Center-
Mustard Seed- the Question?
Early Quakers let let their lives speak the answer-
“We live in the same Life and Power as the Prophets and the Apostles.”
Isaiah 43  Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. — Peter Crysdale, Dec. 18, 2013
