Prayer

A little praying out of my thoughts after a few great days at college.

Jesus you pissed people off.

The religious, the power holders and the freedom fighters; somehow you managed to confound each one of them.

You overturned temple tables, crossed taboos and loved
with such spectacular disregard for the way things are done. Many were deeply attracted to you,
but even your closest friends seem to been befuddled and infuriated.

And I think I know you? I would dare to believe I’ve heard all your stories and might be familiar with what you will do.

Forgive me for co-opting you Lord. And offend me once again. Overturn my holy tables and disabuse we with your radical love.

Then maybe I can become a little more like you.
Amen.
