As we enter Holy Week a range of emotions come upon us. We witness the betrayal, death and resurrection of Jesus. We ask questions of who we are in the understanding of God’s holy light. I hope that this short poem/prayer can align our hearts and minds during this week. 

Where is joy?

As the hand is made for holding,
and the eye for seeing.
You have fashioned us for joy.
Share with us the vision that
shall find it everywhere.

And, when our song of joy dies down to silence,
come, hold our powerlessness with love!
Then shall our fear be gone,
and our feet set on a radiant path.
