again?

Year A - Second Sunday in Lent or Conviction [2]
March 16, 2014

again?

Abram, Jesus, I, You
called from understandable home
to wilderness journey
on a wild entrepreneurial promise
of grandeur
oh yes
and blessing too

we each and all
wrestle through 
our Nicodemus stage
of being drawn onward
all the while resisting
with delaying tactics
“How can this be”

every student knows
how to distract a teacher
a dumb question on
a pet topic
does the trick quite nicely
until the trick backfires
and we hear the call anew

Indeed, G*D is not calling
to just change location
but to shift hearts
to birth compassion
by entering
condemnation’s womb
to be born anew
