Come and see

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.

         They said to him, “Teacher, where are you staying?”
         He said to them, “Come and see.”

                  —John 1.38-39

They said, “Where do you abide?”
         Where is your heart rooted?
         Where does your spirit linger?
         Where will you always be?
         Where do you eternally remain?
         Where does your loving presence dwell?
         

He said, “Come and see.”
         Draw near. Don’t be distant. Come.
         It will be among the poor, the silenced,
         under the weight of the cross.
         You’ll have to leave some things behind.
         You won’t see the healing
         unless you’re close to the wound.
         Come.
         
         Look.
         Without judgment or analysis, simply attend.
         Don’t theorize: notice.
         

The Lamb of God
who takes away the sin of the world
lives with us.
Keep the eyes of your soul open.

         
              
Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
