Pregnant with Fire

O burning bush,
Pregnant with flame,
Tell us your secret.
What is your name?

To earth you cling,
From soil you grow,
Yet brightly you shine
With heaven’s glow.

Though filled with fire,
A sight profound,
No ashes blacken
Your holy ground.

From you comes forth
The Word of Him
Who fills with His life
Your every limb.

O burning bush,
Pregnant with flame,
Tell us your secret.
What is your name?

    Chad,
    May I have permission to print this for our service folders next week. We’re celebrating the pre-incarnate Christ in Advent and this is the text used next midweek. Thanks for your beautiful writing and the true theology in it.
    God’s peace,
    Jeff
