Storytelling – Psalm 78

History Spirit speaks. Nothing is simple.
Moral legacy keepers, earth-tenders
croon multi-language laments for lost tribes,
lonely elders, broken covenants, frail
marriages, failed adoptions; confessions;
obsessions; addictions; competitions.

Mystery Spirit speaks. All is simple.
Happy grandparents, loving aunts and uncles
tell wonders: climbing out, helping others
after bridge collapse; close calls, providence;
sound sleep, nutrition; joy in work and play;
plenty fresh clean water for everyone.

Love Wisdom speaks. Simply listen.
Fledgling congregations, Shalom walkers
sing each other awake with spirited
ballads, amazing tales of forgiveness,
perseverance, reconciliation,
generosity, regeneration.
