Cm-9.28.11 Nehemiah 2.1-8 Ps. 137.1-2, 3, 5-6, 6 Luke 9. 57-62
Cosmic connection: early enough to see Venus in the predawn darkness. No moon
Question of the day: Do you really know where it is you want to go?
There is so much tragedy in lives in this time,
If one were not home to help what distress,
To please the king and bring about success,
The person in Nehemiah wants to please the sublime,
“By the streams of Babylon we sat and wept remembering Zion,”
We longed to be with our ancestors a home coming, Io understand
‘How can we sing a song of the Lord in a foreign land?”
Let my tongue be silenced if I forget you Jerusalem above all my joy.
Jesus meets eager disciples on the way,
I will follow you one said, Jesus replied
“Follow me” to another, Let me bury my dead, No Jesus replied I will provide,
Let us always do what is fit for the Kin-dom I say.
All else is considered rubbish
As long as I may gin Christ and be found in him and write good enough to publish
