Burning Bush | CBE International

You are here

Burning Bush

Rooted
in my kitchen chair,
your eyes blue flashing
fire,
leaping from soul, flare
where burn flames hottest.

You tell your wild stories
exclaiming joy,
throwing spring branches wide
to show me how big–
and then you throw farther.

I turn aside.

Here we sit,
Parched edges of my wilderness,
Horeb
And hot cereal
All mingled together.
Mystery morning,
glory ground,
invitation:
my God in a boy.

“Moses, Moses…”

Here I am.

Barring women from using their God-given talents is an injustice that diminishes the gospel and its impact in the world. CBE International works to inspire and mobilize Christians with the Bible’s call for women and men to co-lead and co-serve as equals.
