The gift

John 4:7-10

A Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink.” (His disciples had gone to the city to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew, ask a drink of me, a woman of Samaria?” (Jews do not share things in common with Samaritans.) Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.”

The gift
of creating space
in which encounters happen
The gift
of inviting exploration
of thoughts
that long have been buried
tamped down
kept inside
The gift
of encouraging
playful imagination
giving free rein
to the unimaginable
opening up possibility
expanding horizons
encouraging growth 
All achieved
when one creates space
for the other.
