May these ways sink deeply into our hearts, our lives in ways we’d never dreamed.

I love the closing liturgy which Kathy Escobar has put up on her site. It is a version of the sermon on the mount by jesus. It just has some of the thoughts and feelings i think in my head, as a spoken response to the original words. As the words are spoken some of these thoughts need to be answered.

After reading marko‘s post about “doing a claibourne” I have been thinking alot about the sermon on the mount.

just the ease of it.

how it hasn’t complicated the simple.

how short it was.

how familiarity has bred out the inherant radicalness of the text.

The version by Kathy, I think makes the text different enough that you can hear it again. Perhaps even do buisness with it again. Who knows, go read it.
