Bird Preacher and Bird Poet
Heron and egret, wise and wild. I saw them both last week as I walked with friends along Monterey Bay.
Poet Mary Oliver saw “Some Herons” at dawn on the magic waters she loved and she called them “preachers” and “poets,” gowned, ready for a whole long sweet day.
We recalled her poem as we stood in silent awe, grateful for the birds’ sermon and verse.
Come hear avian sermons and verse along Monterey Bay. Take a youth service trip or adult pilgrimage. Bluetheology.com. I post these ocean devotions every Wednesday here and on Facebook.
