Lectionary Haiku 26 February 2022

The escalating crisis in Ukraine cries out for a Psalm-like orientation as sovereignty demands compete. Psalm 99 does not disappoint. Moses descended the mountain bearing the perfect rule for human society, but his people had abandoned its Source before he even reached level ground. Today we feel his frustration at the futility of it all. And yet the journey is towards human completion, visible to those whose eyes are on the horizon and who therefore understand Jesus’ ecstasy before his disciples – are they bewildered or on the same page?

Oligarchs stomp in
To enslave mind, heart and soul
But guess who’s in charge!

Here are words that lead
To transformed life together
But you prefer chaff!

Luke 10:21-24

Open your eyes and see
A vision bright and within
It’s there! Look and be!

Okay Boomer - that I am. But not one of them know-it-all ones! Still learning that the more I know, the more I have yet to learn. What I do know, however, I know well.
