Though

Pentecost +21 — Year C

Though

on the way
to our expected goal
there are calls to pause
along the way to practice
what we preach

Jerusalem will be
a personal transformation
to even newer life
from heavy to light
from ow to ah

but we’re not there
yet
it can be offered
to others
though

in fact Jerusalem
is here now
where prophet meets priest
where thanks is given
instead of further sacrifice

journey expectations
find refreshment
encouragement
along the way
sufficient to continue

so onward
again assured
an exile’s home
is a strong pull
forward
