Called to life….

Pondering what it is to be called into life, looking at the Biblical story of Lazarus raised from the tomb. Pondering the tombs we find ourselves in, tombs of our own creation and tombs we stumble unwittingly into. Pondering that sometimes we wake up, or are woken up by life and love, and a deep desire to be made whole…


A deep breath shocked me, woke me,

broke into me,

there in the darkness, responding to life’s call

blood pumped again, coursing through my veins



New life,

life called out of hiding

life was demanding life of me…


…but I was bound,

bound in the grave clothes of tales I told myself

over and over…

my doubts and fears were holding me…


yet my blood was pumping,

my heart was pounding

what had long laid dead,

was fully alive…


alive and called to life,

by life,

for life,

called out into a spacious place…


so bound, to be unbound

I answered life’s call

and came stumbling into the light

where love continues to unbind me…

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
