Traveling Mercies

Pentecost +6 - Year C

seventy times
seven times
forging welcome forgiveness
and strewn everywhere
we might go

in Podunk Center
forgiveness has preceded
our arrival
its practice has prepared
a welcome

in a Capital City
there too forgiveness
has grown ready
to embrace our presence
welcoming

no matter what eventuates
we have seen a miracle
fear does not prevail
Satan does not burn
a wide-welcome rises

there is no law
low enough to constrain
peace and mercy
from their appointed rounds
where'er we go
