Lenten reflections on scripture — For New England Lay and Clergy Worship Leaders

(Matthew 6: 25)

Therefore I tell you,
do not worry about the weather
whether it will snow one more time
or the sun will reach fingers
of light and heat
for bulbs planted deep,

or about your Easter
whether knee-deep mud
will swallow the sunrise service,
whether lilies and anthems
will be what the planners planned,
whether the sermon
will be witty and gentle
and yet compelling.

Is not one coat shared
more than the temperature,
and one person
who has lost someone
beloved
and needs to hear that story
about stumbling around the garden
confused about gardeners

more important than trumpets
(and peeps) and alleluias?
