Pentecost +12 – Year A
Sure enough, being alone is tough. If we've just sent a crowd away, we still have an identity to wrestle with.
Wrestling through who we are now to the folks we once knew is painful. It is like competitively forcing oneself to an advanced yoga asana – some hip is going to be permanently out of joint, at least a nose.
Rejoice that an unexpected blessing can come from folks showing up out of the blue or settling down for a long winter's nap.
A face of G*D is constantly showing up. We find that face in others needing mercy. We find that face in ourself needing mercy. Having been trained in parables we can see G*D's Presence anywhere and everywhere.
May you find the blessing of a face of G*D in your today.
