The Thing About Trust

The thing about trust

If I don’t have yours
I can’t earn it

No single deed
Or lifetime of deeds
Will do

Not even Jesus Christ
Can earn my trust
Or yours
Unless he already has it

No, Lamb of God

O God, deliver us from the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, because the sin of the world is our heart’s desire, our uniform, our derby hat. O Lamb of God, have mercy upon us. Christ have mercy upon us.

Frederick Buechner, Secrets in the Dark: A Life in Sermons, “Air for Two Voices”

Unpopular, this.
Too often too true.

After we do our God thing
(or not)
And get down to the business
Of doing Our thing

God doesn’t have a ticket,
The bouncer at the door explaining
It’s sold out.


Grace and peace to us all…
