Pentecost +8 B

Proper 11B Condensed

I’ll tell you
what I’ve done
and modeled

what I can’t tell
is what I haven’t done
and falsely modeled

to sail with both
is a scarey ghostly ride
tossed stressed

where is “take heart”
or “be not afraid”
when out of my depth

later landed

chosen gifts
meet unclean acts
without hostility

where once
was twice
new growth

health is recognized
flocked to where
even fringes heal

until promises
are landed
keep rowing
