Community Preaching

There is nothing like hearing a great speech, sermon, or homily in my mind. Trained as a public speaker, I enjoy an impassioned message.

Recently, while attending a service at a “home away from home” kinda place, I connected with the message of letting God take care of it all. Relax, breath, enjoy. In his final words, the priest recited this poem from memory.

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any--lifted from the no
of all nothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened).

Let us find those words in our hearts and live through them.
