Life: that’s what we all hunger for, wait for always,Frederick Buechner, Secrets in the Dark: A Life in Sermons, “Delay”
whether we keep coming back to places like church to find it or whether we avoid places like church like the plague as the last places on earth to find it:
both delivered in part and derelict in part, immigrants and mongrels all of us.
It’s life as we’ve never really known it but only dreamed it that we wait for.
Life with each other, Life for each other.
Life with the darkness gone.
Jesus, you said
I am the Light of the world
I am the way, the truth, and the life
I came that they might have life abundantly
My joy I give to you
May your words prevail this day
in my life
and in our world
Light shining in the darkness,
the darkness not prevailing
May it be
Grace and peace to you…
