a last minute friday thing…

i should be preparing for gippsland presbytery tomorrow where we’re introducing a new model for working with prisons, or putting work into the website for the fringe festival space we’re doing, or pulling together all the things I need to read next week… it’s madness here, and instead i’m frippering away time…

it’s faith that has me
not the other way round

i try to shake it loose
and i don’t know whether it’s habit
ingrained
or the god i can’t believe in
but somehow i am wrapped
in this story
and it won’t let me go

so today,
i wondered again
how i would survive a moment
and a place
that seem overwhelming.
and maybe it’s only the memory of faith
i heard telling me
trust the wisdom that’s here
in this moment
already.

regardless,
i will.
