Acting Up and Out ~ The church today
Rather than make a list today,
I might find a place to lay.
I might find the space to pray.
I might search for the room to sit and stay.
Rather than accomplishment I boast,
Perhaps it is tending a relationship with family or friends,
Perhaps it is creating a meal to enjoy,
Perhaps it is just being and breathing.
Of all the business and busyness of our churches today,
We still don't help people understand the importance of rest.
To realize that God's love doesn't depend on what we do,
But on who we are.
To realize that grace is not earned like a merit badge,
But offered freely everyday.
To rest in that promise,
To wrap ourselves in that truth.
That is what I am going to do today.
