And I will give you rest
Life is my religion
Last night I dreamt that I was about to deliver a sermon in a small church with a few broken people in the audience. A young woman who just lost the love of her life, a group of elderly ladies that where angry that their world was changing to much, a young man who had been falsely accused, a family that could not afford food for the month and a few others all coming for existential relief, hoping for the miracle.
I could not go back to sleep as I could not let the dream go and I realized that the need of this handful of strays was the same as mine. So I got out of bed and wrote the sermon I needed to hear:
“The rest that Jesus offers is the rest of the cross. It is the rest of wailing and crying out, the rest of facing our existential crisis and together with the Nazarene cry out: my god, my god why have you forsaken me.”
