Just Any Other Wednesday

What you must think of us, Holy One.

Here it is our Holy Week–

the week we vow to re-member:

our own culpability

our own tendency toward shame and blame

our own denial

this week of all weeks

we open ourselves to repentence

we invite you in to help us find

the courage and wisdom to break the pattern

To prepare our hearts and minds for redemption.

 

And yet–here we are.

Using terror for political gain

pointing a hand full of fingers at anyone but ourselves

Crying crocodile tears for yet another mass killiing

while gorging ourselves on the kernels of a bottomless bowl of media.

Forgive us, Holy One.

Forgive us our trespasses.
