lenten journal: worship guide

there’s a liturgy to our life
that begins with breakfast
cereal, coffee, cinnamon toast

some days the invocation
is offered by public radio
and others we speak ourselves

we exchange the reading
of our calendars, listing our
obligations and appointments

and talk of when we will
come home to one another
answering the altar call

to return and to remember
our hope is built on something
as simple as promises kept

we are blessed in our goings
out and our comings in
that pretty much covers it

amen

Peace,
Milton

That was wonderful. "...to remember our hope is built on something as simple as promise kept..."
