Palm/Passion Sunday – C3

Palm/Passion Sunday – C3

Years C
Passion Sunday
Isaiah 50:4-9a
Psalm 31:9-16


Passion:

What word sustains a weary Jesus?

The Lord God is already helping me, even though it is hard to see right now?
This is the confrontation that clarifies our relationship?
It is for times like this that my practice of trust comes to the fore?

Or should those question marks become exclamation points? (Better to spell that out, otherwise it looks like: should those ?s become !s? - and that is a bit confusing.) Some folks find possibilities more energizing. Some find certainties to better sustain them.

What word sustains a weary you?

A word that sustains me is, "My times are not mine alone."

= = = = = = =

a weariness unto
a vanity of weariness
wears our vanity
into weariness

circular repetition
or steady state
trap weariness
into our bones

passion beaten
into weariness
beats us down
to misery

passion in the midst
of weariness
shines light
beyond time

which was
and is
and may yet be
freedom

one kingdom
stringing up another
calls for a new realm
freedom

freedom - morning awake
freedom - learns to listen
freedom - open eared
freedom - beyond time
