Dear Lord,
Thank you for fishing
For the memories
For the moments of my life
That are so necessary
For my spiritual
And emotional survival
In a world of chaos
That seems
At every turn to be
A jungle out there

My prayer is
That every reader
Will make the time
To go fishing

The fishing I’m talking about
Doesn’t require a pole
Or hand line
Books or cooking work fine
Or skiing or golf,
Yoga or bird watching,
Gardening or teaching,
Swimming or story telling
Riding or meditating
Praying or skipping rope
Or anything that resets the mind,
That nourishes the soul,
That makes it possible for us
Members of the Christian community,
To be, as Christ commanded,
Spiritually whole
Fishers of human kind.
In a worried world
Of disorder and confusion.
