Curtains

When the curtain is pulled back,
  and our social, economic,
    and political choices are revealed
      in the light of day,

I suspect we'll recognize
  the influence of a lot less grace
    and community than we'd hoped,
      and a lot more fear
    and separation than we'd imagined.

Faith and the journey
  of spiritual formation require
    that we allow sacred questions
      to ask themselves
    throughout our relational reasoning
  and decision-making processes,

which is very different
  from giving scared questions
    a platform or squeezing
      perceived reality into a tidy
    doctrinal box of our own choosing.

  1. Though I think that many are so scared of Trump that they can barely breathe.
