“The word is very near to you”

“The word is very near to you…”

(Deuteronomy 30:14)

To listen the Word you first must hear,
beyond the rising of the sea,
across the burning of the sky,
tender the people’s lost, and found.

To speak the Word, you must in courage
let it speak within your heart,
set it forth from where you are,
trust your hearers’ need to hear.

To let the Word stir, you first need see
its seed is planted among us already,
it starts from where we are in our lives,
it grows with the tending, so let us begin.

The Word is very near to you.

Thanks be to God
the word given us bear.

In honor and memory of those seeking to teach God’s Word.
