This morning I was facilitating a session on theological reflection. I never expected God to speak through the earrings I had put on earlier! We played with jigsaws, pictures, dice as well as lots of different theological resources. Just as I was leaving the person who invited me came up and shared that he thought God wanted to say something to me through my seahorse earrings. Apparently seahorses mate for life, and do a dance type thing where they wrap their tails round each other and. The word was about my faithfulness to God and God’s faithfulness to me. Earlier in the week I had shared something which I felt God had said to me which felt a little risky to do and sitting reflecting on the word shared with me brought me reassurance. I have always found 2 Timothy 1.6 significant which is often rendered fan into flame the gift that is within you. I am grateful for the person who shared what they thought God was saying to me – a simple word which had deep significance – and grateful to God that I was given something to share that blessed others. I wonder what would have happened if I had put on a different pair of earrings!
