Small Moments

by Alan Olson

It’s the small moments,
that remind me why
I went into the ministry.

It’s the Bible study on Zoom,
when only two people log in.
Our conversation drifts.
We talk about the scriptures,
but only a little.

We talk more about the
moments and stories
that make up our lives.

It’s the connection
I’ve always yearned for.

Alan Olson serves as the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Freehold, NJ. He is working on a Doctorate of Ministry in Creative Writing and Public Theology at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.
