In this reading from Luke 8:16-25, Jesus asks his disciples, " Where is your Faith?" That
has happened to all of us sometimes if we are honest with ourselves - including clergy.
What puts me back on track is the love Jesus has for me and you.
Kathy Hood Culmer of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas, Houston, composed a beautiful poem
about how love put her back together.
Blessings and love,
I used to fall apart.
And love put me back together again and again and again.
But then, something in my heart and in my head said:
Time has come for this to end
Your doubt grieves me and does offend.
When will it begin
to really trust and not just pretend?
I AM the One
on whom you can depend
My boundless love to comprehend,
the holy power to transcend!
In the face of every foe
I will defend you;
Whatever circumstances in life
May attend you
I am within you always, child of mine.
Let my Word do its work and amend you
So I can send you!
