2015.10.01: peace of the Lamb

Jesus said to them, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest. Go on your way; behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves. Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals; and greet no one along the way. Into whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this household.’ If a peaceful person lives there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you.” – Lk 10:2-6

peace finds rest

on the day of the harvest

among the lambs

2015.07.28: Wisdom

The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his Kingdom all who cause others to sin and all evildoers. – Mt 13:41

like a persistent siren
you whisper from the deep
soft but insistent
you demand detachment
from all things disorderly
little by little you peel back
the layers of worldly trappings
revealing the newborn child
as perfect as the day of creation
then the harvesters come
to remove all implants not belonging
along with all who won’t let go

2015.06.15: harvest

As your fellow workers, we appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain. – 2 Cor 6:1

(Along with further reflection of Mk 4:26-34)

seeds have been planted
wheat as well as weed
what is fed will flourish
what is watered will thrive
what is pruned will grow skyward
what is ignored will die
the harvest is coming
the unfolded life will show its yield
