Two days

Hooray. I think this is the first time in years I've finished a Sunday sermon on Thursday. Of course it may help that I'm not preaching these days. Of course it may help that I get to preach on prayer... What every Christian should know about prayer.  Of course mine is not the definitive word.  It is my word. 

I finished two days early.
This means I can trim branches
In the back yard,
Pull the grapevine
Out of the crab apple,
Enjoy the massing grackles,
Take an endless walk,
Finish reading that book,
Think of things beyond
The sermon.
So many other ways
To offer my time
To God
So many ways to pray.
So many
So many
What options we have
When we’re not stuck
Putting everything
On paper.
