The Men That Don’t Fit In – a poem

There’s a race of men that don’t fit in,
A race that can’t stay still;
So they break the hearts of kith and kin,
And they roam the world at will.

Packing for Holy Week

We know how this pilgrimage will end, because we have the guidebook. We’ve been here before.

While at table with his friends

Come near and bless us when we wake,
ere through the world our way we take;
till in the ocean of thy love
we lose ourselves in heaven above.

On Gratitude and the Cross

Sermon preached on Luke 18:9-14 at my Field Placement parish, Christ Church Bronxville. I do not have a recording from that day, but I gave the sermon again for my Preaching class in Nouwen Chapel. Enjoy.
