Eye of the needle

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         It is easier
         for a camel
         to go through
         the eye of a needle
         than for someone
         who is rich
         to enter
         the realm of God.

                  —Mark 10.25

What do I cling to
that burdens me,
that keeps me from you?

What emptiness do I fear
that you can’t fill?

What baggage do I carry
that keeps me
from loving perfectly,
giving wholly?

What would I not give away
to find you in my empty hands?


         Get the
         lead out
         and the gold.
         I will go
         Spin me
         of grace.
         Draw me
         the needle
         of your
         eye into
         the world
         of your

         That old
         will be
         so much
         out in the

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
