Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Easter, Wheels Off

April 22, 2019

the preacher did the dumbest thing ever
especially on Easter
he took the Scripture seriously

when it suggested a lack of efficiency
a holy aimlessness
he stopped talking

the congregation wandered around outside
exposed to all manner of insights and inspirations
bountiful dangers and pitfalls

after church, he went home
sat around, utterly without direction
watching his children do things

dinner was undertaken with zero regard to timeframe
cooked over fire
done when it was finished

while it cooked
he carefully observed his children
as they dyed hard-boiled eggs

after dinner, he did the dishes
then sat on the couch
rubbing the feet of his overtired wife
until she fell asleep
