During the seasons of Lent and Easter our church is going through the basics of Christian belief in the Apostles’ Creed. Each week we are reflecting on a different line from the creed and during the week we are reflecting on various scriptures that speak to the theme. Every Wednesday there is a psalm and an invitation to rewrite it in our own words.
This week we considered “Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord.” This week’s psalm is Psalm 2, a psalm about the reign of God’s anointed one. Here is my own poem, inspired by the psalm:
When the sun shines
our little light bulbs can’t hold a candle to its light.
When the Son reigns
our rules and rulers will be put in check—
lawless laws, laid low; reckless wrongs made right.
When faith is sight
frenzy will fade as we behold the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth;
wicked whispers will wither beneath the waters where we hear that true Voice:
“You are my beloved, you are my beloved.”
