A Poem To Sit With
The 2nd Sunday of Advent C
December 6, 2015

The one who began a good work in you         
will continue to complete it           
until the day of Christ Jesus.          
(Reading 2)

God is
the
self’s

structure

nothing
can
be taken

away

emptiness
is
fullness

the proof
is
the deed
color
form
fragrance

hidden
in
seed

blessing
the
desert

flowering

peace
