As Wild Geese Fly

Stewardship is the how of living toward God – Generous Stewards Geese flying in formation
not the wheels on the bus, but
the way the wild geese fly.

The way the wild geese fly –
not just instinct but also intention:
the how of living toward God.

The how of living toward God –
using what I have for God’s goals:
given wings, I’ll risk to fly!

Given wings, I’ll risk to fly –
not rules for strict goodness, but
leaning on the Wind of God.

Leaning on the Wind of God –
learning to fly now, and now, and now,
exulting in the beat of God’s wings.
