I long to find the perfect words.
Words that will open every door.
Words that will make sense to folks on the left and the right of me.
Words that will keep a Church from the threat of schism.
Words that will bring the world to its senses.
I wish God would put magic words into my mouth.
Isn’t that what the Holy Spirit is supposed to do?
Words that will bring people back to Love.
Words that will make things clear.
Words that will cut through every artificial barrier.
. . .
I spend so much time trying to choose my words,
trying to search for the right thing to say,
trying to be eloquent,
And so little time trying to JUST BE.
Maybe I should try THESE words:
“SPEAK, FOR YOUR SERVANT IS LISTENING.”
(Welcome to Lent)
Have a great week,
