Sisters and brothers,

 

The monk and poet Thomas Merton wrote this brief poem:

If you want to identify me,

ask me not where I live,

or what I like to eat, or

how I comb my hair;

but ask me what I am living for,

in detail, and ask me

what I think is keeping me

from living fully for

the thing that I want to live for.

 

I believe Merton's words are full of wisdom. I also think we could rewrite it for this congregation:

If you want to identify Advent,

don't ask us our street address,

or what we serve at pot-luck suppers, or

what clothes we wear to church;

but ask us what we are living for,

in detail, and ask us

what we think is keeping us

from living fully for

the One we want to live for.

 

Peace,
Pastor Rigg
