to read it repeatedly?
to strap or bind it to one's body?
or simply to remember as you walk through life...
step by step?
who gets to interpret such readings and teachings?
do you? do i? do we?
who do we give permission
how do we decide what is
how do we know if we're close-
if we're on the right track?
how do we know where to act,
what to do,
and who to love?
so many questions
with responding echoing silence.
may you continue
it is in community that we being to understand
what it means
to be devoted
and to walk in faith.
be blessed as you ask your questions.
perhaps that's all we can do right now...
perhaps that's when we grow and mature.
perhaps that's when we actually become the church...
step by step.
