Pastor’s Pondering – October 24, 2018

Fear not

Is the most frequent commandment

And for the most part I don’t,

Though there are hours, days,

Years at which I worry

About how to live,

Respond responsibly if the worst happens,

Daily aware that it quite well could,

And this sudden awareness that my confidence rests

In my faith in democracy

And rational thought,

Not in God’s ability to redeem- nay,

God’s determination

To redeem us from our

Lust for power,

Our abhorrence of our neighbors.


Thy kingdom come,

Thy will be done

And until it is, Lord,

Help my unbelief.
