The Age of Uncertainty: Flowing in Action

day is
a journey.
New challenges
are coming in waves.
Trust the Lord to guide you.
Move through every obstacle
like water flowing to channels
that empty into open spaces.
Do not dwell in the depths of your despair.

The Age of Uncertainty: Present Tense

A resurgence of uncertainty looms
as the newest year is ushered in
to muted fêtes mixed with longing
for a return to days past.
But ahead we must go.
Each present moment
leads to the next.
There is no

Do Not Worry

is darkness,
scary because
we cannot see it.
Sorrow, loss, even death
await us but there is hope.
Living life brings light to the day.
In God there is no darkness at all,
and with faith, peace will dwell in heart and mind.

Risk Everything

taking risks.
We need courage
to live everything…
to not be so careful
that we don’t experience
all that God has gifted to us.
We can discover joy in sorrow
so long as fear does not get in the way.

Life itself is a great sacrament through
which we are wounded and healed.”–John O’Donohue

Just Mercy

must pray
for those who
have lost their way.
Justice is empty
if not imbued with grace.
Forgiveness is powerful,
a reverent acceptance that
humility is the hand of God
pulling off the veil of our humanness.

The Peace of the World

is a
healing word,
invoking a
vision of wholeness.
It is God’s hope for us.
We live in a broken place.
When we spread God’s peace to others,
we place our hands into the world’s wounds
and with Christ, become healers of the world.

“A week later his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were shut, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe.”
John 20: 26-27

Living Vessels

we feast
on the bread
and drink the wine,
we receive the life
of Christ into ourselves
and we come alive with it!
We remember not who Christ was
but who he is in the here and now.
We are the vessels of Christ in the world.

Abundant Grace

is all
around us
in abundance.
Grace takes great courage.
Grace is strength not weakness.
Do not use grace sparingly.
Accept grace when offered to you.
Against hate, grace is the best defense.
The power of grace is within us all.
