Inspired by Joseph Smith—History 1:1-26
In this dream,
two hellfire preachers
wail from their high pulpits:
Choose! Line up, pick a side,
all else be damned!


On hands and knees,
I struggle to pray,
but my lips can’t form words,
my heart sinks far away,
spirit gutters,

and then there is light
focused like a beam,
blinding out everything else,
burning through to pure relief.
Peace. Assurance. Love.

God cuts through the tumult:
Do not join any of them.

I awake on my back
staring into heaven
in the half-light of dawn.









Inspired by the Come, Follow Me readings for January 4-10
