Imagine you are cutting wood
with Joseph, the carpenter from Nazareth.
Imagine him teaching you
to hear God in the silence
as your hand slides over the plank in front of you.
For Joseph knows that God is in all things;
in the wood at your fingertips,
in the trees it came from,
and in the person who will sit
in the chair that he makes.
The care he gives to his work
is the same care he gives to all people.
Because Joseph understands
that to work is to serve,
and to serve is to love,
and to love your neighbor
is to also love yourself,
for we are all connected in the mystery of God.
Joseph taught Jesus all these things
when Jesus was once a little child;
and he can teach you, too,
if you only ask.
Joseph is crafted from calico cotton with a polyester filling.
He has embroidered features, wool yarn hair, and a felt beard.
