Pentecost +6 Sunday – A

Pentecost +6 Sunday – A

Years A
Genesis 24:34-38, 42-49, 58-67 or Zechariah 9:9-12
Psalm 45:10-17 or Song of Solomon 2:8-13 or Psalm 145:8-14
Romans 7:15-25a
Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30


A first or most recent glance at a beloved calls forth action. A first or most recent whisper of a beloved calls forth action. Whether from or toward a beloved, we are called beyond sitting and theorizing/creedalizing/speculizing.

Even with the threat of messing up, of mistaking a dream of a beloved for a beloved, there is no real option (though lots of unreal ones) for following a heartbeat that resonates with one's own. There are no guarantees where such action will lead, simply a prayer that love will find its way.

Such love is our birthright. It is G*D's way that we re-image. It is a source of thanks that eases our journey through life.

= = = = = = =

stamp your foot
play your flute
throw your tantrum

there is no getting around
a wisdom of deeds
lived into and through

eventually we all
arise and come away
to a beloved space

in such wise
prisoners are freed
from dryness unto death

in such wise
prisoners are made
of restored hope
