preach it

...peter's first sermon in acts.
read was too much for my mind to even begin to wrap itself around.

blessings on you
who stand in the tension and flux
of understanding God.
in the struggle to understand what is
and what isn't,
what was and what will be,
what we are
and what we should be.
blessings on you who step out of the battle waging on
who choose to be peace
who choose to listen
and who choose to be humble in a world that seems so very sure
and so very lost.
as you change,
as we revisit places we've been,
and look toward the places we'd like to see.
as we embrace dialogue,
as we choose love,
and as we rejoice in this journey.
continually thankful for the chance to
the chance to think,
and the ever-present chance to change.
