Easter Sunday – C2

Easter Sunday – C2

Years C
Psalm 118:1-2, 14-24

The phrase "head of the corner" in verse 22 can point in the direction of a keystone at the top of an arch or a cornerstone holding two sides of a building together.

A stone rejected as a cornerstone for lack of squareness yet has the opportunity to be just the right shape for a keystone. This sways me in the direction of keystone.

Once moving in that direction it can be seen how a keystone can rescue an out-of-line cornerstone. It will take the weight, the stress, the pressure of misalignment. This is a more helpful image than that of rule-giver that comes with cornerstones. A keystone is also more humble. Cornerstones often have a date carved on it and a special memory box hidden away inside, while keystones quietly keep things from falling apart.

Easter, a last stone in place to confirm an arc of meaning?

Easter, a first stone in place to set the direction of future growth?

And the ratio of these in your life?

= = = = = = =

right hands and left brains
left hands and right brains
have different sensibilities

when it comes to glory's gate
being opened for me and thee
right or left makes no matter

if it takes both hands
and both brains
just open the door

imagine Alphonse and Gastone
as godly comic gatekeepers
holding open a door for all
