Plucking Blackberries

Maple Seeds

Maple Seeds by Dan Walnuss

Today we read the story of Moses and the burning bush, Exodus 3:1-15.  I got to use one of my favorite lines of poetry in my sermon:

Earth’s crammed with Heaven, and every common bush afire with God.                   But only he who sees takes off his shoes; the rest sit ’round it and pluck blackberries.                                           (Elizabeth Barrett Browning)

If you’d like to find out what that has to do with maple seeds, click the link below to listen.  (If you’d like to read the scripture passage first, clicking on the verse above will open it in another window.)
