Acts 20:17-27, Ps 68, John 17:1-11

A love affair

“I don’t want to end up simply having

visited this world,” says Mary Oliver.

Nor do I.

I want to be mindful of every
life-giving breath.

I want to sing at dawn with the
avian symphony.

I want to waft on the aroma of
fresh baking.

I want to be transported by the
perfume of roses.

I want to tread on sun-warmed

I want to see the divine in each
person I meet.

I want to respond with delight
to the call of God.

I want my life to be a love affair
with the divine.
