Who Do You Say That I Am?

Holy Mystery

You come to us in the form of Jesus

A human

Word made of flesh and blood

Feelings and foibles,

And still we don’t recognize you.

You ask us who we say you are

And like children on the first day of school

We have quick and ready answers:

You are the messiah

The Son of the Living God.

And like a good teacher

You gently remind us

You don’t want quick or easy answers

You don’t desire us to answer

what we think you want to hear

You desire us to be real

Real with our answers

And real with our questions.

Amen.
