Mark 4:26-34

To what shall we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable can we use for it? It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground

the tiny
 mustard plant,
give us your roots.
Dig down deep in our souls,
storm into our hearts and minds.
Grow into so large a plant
that all of our actions
all of our ideas,
all our loves
and selves
and shelter
 in your branches.


Ezekiel 17:22-24

Thus says the Lord GOD: I, too, will take from the crest of the cedar, from its topmost branches tear off a tender shoot, and plant it on a high and lofty mountain;

Lord God,
Please take our topmost branches.
Cleanse the tender shoot
of our hearts.
Do your
  wondrous works.

Let us put forth fruit
and branches
 that sweep
the sky.
Let birds of every kind dwell there,
every winged thing in the
 shade of their


2 Corinthians 5:6-10

Therefore, we aspire to please him,whether we are at home or away.


whether we dwell at home or away
guide our steps to your way.
Fill us with courage,
walking by faith,

not by sight.
