Lent 3 A

coming arrived

tired and thirsty
a deadly combination

water in a well
but not a drop to drink

these depths are plumbed
by outcasts

beneath one's station

money won't make it
past achievements won't either

neither will happy talk
or righteous faithful actions

this calls for a new way
beyond discipleship

here we need to know
one another

understand the depths
in another

reconciliation takes two
to make a new way

this new way
binds together

a never being the same
and moving on
