amidst another holy week

We find ourselves
amidst another Holy Week—

braced for the variety of services
telling the story
leading to Easter:
Maundy Thursday,
Tenebrae,
the Easter Vigil.

Remind us, our God,
of the unfolding story,
not as pieces that have become services,
commemorating what happened,
but as parts of a complete narrative
that has become truth for us
to embrace and to live

that we might be found
in truth
within a holy week.

Amen.
