Pastor’s Pondering – October 3, 2018

There are those afternoons

When I walk into a room and immediately

Feel the pain of a rejection,

And seem to recall

EVERY rejection,

Whereupon I ponder

Every failing,

Every error,

Every shortage of graciousness

Upon my part.


In those cursed moments

I find my shelter in the knowledge

I am baptized

I am forgiven

I am redeemed

God is creating

A new earth,

And we all

Shall banquet together.



George R Pasley
