Lent 5

Here, O my LORD, I see Thee face to face...

face to face with God in a coffee barista

face to face with God in newsprint images

ear to whisper with God in a secret shared, a fear named aloud

ear to conversation with God in a chatting child

hand to hand with God in a toddler, in a lover

hand to virtual hand with God in a facebook friend

soup pot to bowl with God at a church dinner

serving spoon to plastic spoon with God at a community breakfast

Here, O my LORD, I see Thee face to face!

(hymn text by Horatius Bonar, 1855)
