“Good news: but, if you ask me what it is, I know not. It is a track of feet in the snow. It is a lantern showing a path. It is a door set open.” G.K.Chesteron

O Mystery,
beyond our definitions,
beyond … but so delighted by
SATB anthem,
Shabbat candles and Salah,

not to speak of rosary,
nine-point star and bathrobe pageant,

come to us in your good, good news
with migrant holy footprints
we may follow in faith,
a lantern in the dark places
of sorrow, doubt or fear,
and all our doors wide open –
to those who only visit
and those who need a home. amen.

*Nine pointed star is a symbol of the Baha’i faith

    Well said Maren, that needed to be said.

    Think of me tomorrow — I could use prayers as well as thoughts. Donald Trump is coming here to be endorsed by the New England Police Benevolent Association (which has nothing to do with any real police) and the clash of demonstrators may be hard on an old lady whose knee has decided to be in lousy shape.
