The Touch of the Spirit

Have you felt the touch of the Spirit?
The murmur of the breath of God?
the change within you as Christ grows
as you are blessed, sent, as he was touched
as he was sent by the father
this journey of life, his ministry of hope,
his walking on this earth,
his anointing by the Spirit,
rising from the waters,
baptismal, new birth, that new creation
born of God, not of man,
sent by Christ, as we are,
as were the first disciples
the spirit breathing life, into us, our hearts
transformed by that indwelling voice of God
moving through us, guiding us
being sent into the world
as the father sent him
