Last week Tom and I recorded a Facebook live session on Establishing a Rule of Life. Not only was it extremely popular but we had some amazing responses including the beautiful poem below by Ana Lisa De Jong. Ana Lisa commented: “Thank you Christine Sine and Tom Sine for the inspiration. Your inspiring FB live today and your Mustard Seed community is a fruitful harvest in itself.” For more information on rule of life check out this post Establishing a Rule of Life Rooted in Shalom Enjoy the recording and the poem.
Teach your children to plant trees.
Teach them to open their hands,
The world which would squeeze them to its mould,
would have them hold on tight,
bury them under its avalanche
Whereas breathing, living,
is found in breaking open,
pouring ourselves out.
Scattering the seed
which without there isn’t fruit.
Teach your children the beauty of creation.
That what we do makes a difference,
just in the act of doing.
The war for our children’s souls is quiet,
quiet as the drug that lulls them to sleep.
Open their hands, give them seeds.
