Harnessing dreams

Slaying giants—
the stuff of dreams
made real when God gets involved.
Stories of old coming to life
when told to a new generation.
God’s word is not safe,
it is dangerous.
It’s not benign,
it is powerful.
It encourages action and dissent
and sounds an alarm for us
to take up its challenge
and fight the monsters of today.
For God does not dwell in the past,
and stories do not remain on the page.
The Good News is a living word
that speaks in every age,
that calls on God’s people
to rise to new challenges,
to seek new ways,
to love and to serve
all God’s people.

A reflection on the story of David and Goliath written for Spill the Beans.
