Faith Has Feet

“Faith has feet.”
Recognizing my role as priest
to carry blessing to all the world.

Beginning right here—
in my home.
Like baking cookies and walking the block,
carrying sweet blessing to neighbors yet unknown.

Moving outward.
Like noticing the older woman in the store
as she questions, “Where is the chocolate milk?”
and backtracking to listen and point her in the right direction.

Slowing to live love
like this—
small moments made important,
each an act of worship—
impacting someone’s world.

“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!””  Isaiah 52:7


Grace and peace be ours in abundance as we respond to Christ by living love, learning daily the truth and blessing of putting Angus Buchan’s words into practice: “Faith has feet.  It’s a doing word."

  1. What a beautiful and gentle reminder that love is sometimes simply being aware of how to enter in - and then quietly doing so. Thank you!
