Called to the Light
Right from the start, we have climbed that tree,
and looked to see what we might see,
and we have each eaten fruit,
each eaten some of the rotten fruit that looked so fresh and ripe.
We are in flight.
Still in flight, we abandon best relationship.
Still in flight, we hold back and deceive ourselves.
Still in flight, we twist and writhe.
We make our homes and space
in every way opaque and gauzy.
If ever innocent, we have long lost it.
God has called us each to speak directly,
to share, to listen, to laugh, to learn.
Called to truth, we easily flee.
Too easily we twist and hide.
This morning, let me be called to the light.
Let me hear the call.
We would find joy in the light.
Joy in the Word!
Joy in the Light!
I will meet you again in the light.
