Pentecost +6 Sunday – C4

Pentecost +6 Sunday – C4

Years C
Luke 10:1-11, 16-20

We just moved with more than a purse, bag, sandals, and silent grim determination of the soul on the road. We arrived with a greeting of "Peace" - some of which has been returned to us and some kept and cherished. We hope to remain without moving for the term of our appointment. Now comes the time to find the culture of this place, to eat what is set before us, and to set a presence of G*D before those sick from its absence.

A challenge is to speak with the authority of experiences of G*D's presence that have gone before without yanking them out of their context.

A hope is great joy.

A task to take authority to enter new experiences of G*D treading out the hurtful.

= = = = = = =

challenges hopes tasks
come in community
from us and to us
in us an for us
by us and with us

they feel like ours alone
but always they are set
in a larger context
shared with seventy times seven
who have gone ahead

we are overwhelmed
with need and limits
carrying only urgency
in frail experience
of expansive presence

yet
it is
enough
for now
and ever
