Mysteries, Yes
By Mary Oliver

Truly, we live with mysteries too marvellous
to be understood.

How grass can be nourishing in the
mouths of the lambs.
How rivers and stones are forever
in allegiance with gravity
while we ourselves dream of rising.
How two hands touch and the bonds
will never be broken.
How people come, from delight or the
scars of damage,
to the comfort of a poem.

Let me keep my distance, always, from those
who think they have the answers.

Let me keep company always with those who say
“Look!” and laugh in astonishment,
and bow their heads.


“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:21

– pray about how you can be part of a growing, inclusive, evangelistic and justice seeking church.
– reflect on how prayer, justice and evangelism are an integrated response to the Gospel.

All We Can is an international development agency, working on behalf of the church to walk alongside communities in places like Binga District in Zimbabwe and Butagaya in Zimbabwe, in order to help them become all that they can – to see every person’s potential fulfilled.
