Embraced

Pentecost +16 - Year B

Embraced

Who is this child placed in the middle of angry children arguing about who is king of the hill?

Could be any child.

But it is the earliest child of each of the angry older children.

Embraced in a way they had forgotten.

Embraced again so strongly they can trust their journey.

In solitude, power, desolation, or desire - Embraced!

and that makes all the difference.

For other takes read: Leonard Cohen’s If I could help you and Naomi Shihab Nye’s Kindness.
