More than our failures

Pastor Cheryl invites you to reflect upon these words of Living Psalm 1:

Blessed has become one of those words that has a hashtag.

It’s become kind of a joke and it doesn’t feel much better to say that we are happy. It doesn’t feel like the same thing.

To be happy that our praise begins here.

Before we sing of any other joys or sorrows,

we find happiness and even blessing in

laboring toward love and justice.

It is not toil but delight to find ourselves in this way

refreshing ourselves with small sips of what we hope to be in this world.

It feels like everything starts here in this hope

and all our work flows from its source.

Or at least, we hope.

We try. We fail sometimes.

Even when we fail, our lives will be more than a hashtag.

We’ll come rejoicing bringing love and justice into all that we say and do.

Living Psalm for Pentecost 13C – Psalm 1 was written by Elsa Cook.
