“This world. This world… our bright grieving world. We spin heavy with ache. We drift quietly down a current of stars. There’s pain all around, in and throughout; it fills our gold canyons. It swells the tides… it’s kept locked in secret because we fear its dark, silent strength. But you are a spark. You can light the night sky. You can warm the blue cold and ease those forgotten. This world needs you. It needs those who give love. Love as free as water to fill in the spaces where things have gone terribly wrong. We need sparks who catch fire in every direction. Publishing peace where chaos yells loud. Delivering warmth – heavy-laden with God’s holy fragrance – to cover the naked. Flames who are rich and brimming with love.”
