Holy Saturday

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.

Wait in this day of three days’ dark,
         a sabbath from knowing,

this forty hours’ wilderness, waiting
         without knowing we are waiting,

still, since nothing new is possible,
         sure of all we know, yet in the dark.

In dark all mysteries unfold:
         seeds grow, stars gleam, the sun

gathers itself to rise, roots touch,
         hearts beat, and love is made.

And in the still, dense dark great love
         says “Let light be.” The light shines

in the darkness, yes, this dark.
         The stone begins to roll away,

the light to rise, that we can’t see
         but only know.



Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
