How Thin The Walls

A word for us on this All Saints Day from Bishop Steven Charleston:

How thin the walls
between earth and heaven.
How close the space between us.
A blink.
A look away.
In an instant the gap is closed,
the two realities flowing together
like rivers passing in the moonlight.
If you are still enough in your soul
you can hear the footsteps of your ancestors
just a breath away.
We are not isolated
in a mechanical clock universe
for no rhyme or reason,
but fellow citizens of a creation
alive with purpose,
animated by love,
drawing time forward
disappear in a timeless grace.
