With a Prostrate Heart

Some sad things:

- premature babies and mothers who have to decide to take them off life support
- racism and prejudice in the church
- the United Methodist Church's continued discrimination and hurtfulness toward its own members
- our utter inability to communicate with one another
- sick family, sick friends
- having no idea where i want to be


Ah, as we prayed for human help: angels soundlessly,
with single strides, climbed over
our prostrate hearts
-Rilke
