My words are stuck God
Do I rage or do I weep?
Wrap me in your grace
“Haiku prayers” posted by John Stevens in Narrative Lectionary facebook group

This week's images of white supremacy storming and occupying our Capitol have caused many of us to rage and weep. In short, to grieve. This was supposed to be a sermon about discerning paths, and in many ways it still is. Listen in as Pastor Megan explores the question of those who followed John the Baptizer into the wilderness, the same question many of us are asking: In light of all we have seen and heard, "What then should we do?"

Sermon begins at minute 24:10
