he said what?

28 . October . 2011

‘it is Jesus who will lead us
in and through the dailiness of life
and the darkness of the world
into something new:

a simple, loving friendship with God
where we will be free from fear, hatred and violence:
free to love people,

particularly those who are
weak and suffering.’
p 29

‘Jesus meets a broken woman
and gives her new life.

transformed, she then gives life to others.

Jesus comes to give us life
so that we may communicate
life to others.

this life is one of communion and relationship.’
p 89

drawn into the mystery of Jesus
through the gospel of john.

do you know my favorite part
of thursday?

waiting outside apt 3AB on
a pretty, rainy street
a few blocks north of here,
and hearing the divine mrs. goble
leading the girls in
‘thy word’

and then she urged them,
louder, girls!

and their voices FILLED
the building.

filled. the building’s stairwell.

i cried,
stunned by the beauty
of their eager message.
