Moments with andrea

I was looking for a reading today and looked through Andrea's poems. Incredible stuff. These three really stuck out to me.

Anonymous Moment
"I screamed at God for all the starving children,
and then I realized
that all of the starving children
were God screaming at me." -

Withdrawing Moment
many times
Jesus withdrew from the crowds
so they would not be able to
force their agenda upon Him

how often
I wonder
does He withdraw Himself
from our churches today
for the very same reason

A Moment
who do not fish

The first one was powerful enough - and they each evoked the same force...

And here all this time I thought fishermen who did not fish just sat around playing cards, drinking, and telling whoppers.
