Note to My Readers: Due to the busyness of my summer schedule, in which I'm serving as a camp pastor on top of my normal duties, I'll be putting my ongoing Thursday and Friday series on hold until mid-August. All other days will continue to feature new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.

Grace Be in Me

Spirit of Truth,

Be the breath that fills me now…

Apart from you I am empty and alone;

Enfolded by you I share in love’s full vigor,

The present embrace of a timeless God.

This pilgrimage is a lonely one at times—

Lonely yet endowed with joy,

And full of the holy silence

That whispers to me always…

That I am not alone.

But I am a poor pilgrim;

Oh, make me a better one.

Grace be in me and upon me,

Life’s breath, and hope of my hope;

Grace be in me and upon me,

Until I know of naught but you;

Grace be in me and upon me,

And make me one with you.
