(some thoughts on the confusion and joy of spiritual eldership….)
We may all be Moses….. but some of us are Grover.
- Grover always acts from a place of service in love
- Grover clearly feels a call to what is right – and never is told what that is
- Grover knows that solutions come from taking great risks, and he takes them.
- Grover can’t always be “super Grover” – he has to make a living among the people, as a fireman, waiter, librarian…this is where he is given the work to do.
- Grover would NEVER respond to a talking, burning bush. He’d put the fire out. Safety first!
- Grover is not physically strong enough to carry stone tablets down a mountain. especially twice.
- Grover gets caught up in the day-to-day process of figuring things out. He is faithful in chaos and confusion. Things just somehow work out alright. Grover never seems to get to know why.
- Super Grover can fly. He jumps into the air and takes off with out a net. But he can’t LAND. He crashes into the ground yelling “arrgghhh”.
- Wherever Grover lands is where he is available to do the Work that is right under his feet.
