Prepare the way of the Holy One,
make a straight path.
“One who is more powerful than I is coming.”
John isn’t just hyping. He’s tapping
into your already surging longing
for the Holy One to be Present:
the Loving One, who has shown you the Way,
the way of love and courage and forgiveness,
the way of trust and gratitude.
Yes, you want to greet the Chosen One,
to be among the angels singing
“Glory to God in the highest.”
So how do you prepare?
How do you make a way for the Beloved,
and get ready to join the great Hallelujah?
As all the angels do.
