Wild Goose

On Tuesday The Sweet Sorrows aka Sammy and Kylie Horner played at Zac's. One of the songs they sang was called Wild Goose.

Most Christians will be used to the representation of the Holy Spirit as a dove. Indeed it was a dove that descended upon Jesus when he was baptised. But the Celtic church opted for another bird: the wild goose.

The thing about wild geese is that, like the Holy Spirit, they're uncontrollable. No-one can tell them what to do. And they can be noisy, challenging and even scary. 

God doesn't always appear as we might expect him to.

P.S. If I could work out how to include an MP3 track I'd put it on here.

Could be a goose - who is to say? :-)
