Proper 15 Year A

The Canaanite Woman... a gospel call to worship:

She asked, he answered
but in the comma lies a story
persistence, yes humility, also
openness of heart and mind
hallmarks of real change
she asks, our answer
lies in the comma.

Reflection upon Genesis 45. Written for Evangelical United Church of Christ, 1999. Copyright Katherine Hawker.

Broken hearts
yet never lost.

Voices calling
from deep beyond
inviting wholeness.

Tears molding pieces
together again.

Hearts for God.
Hearts of God.
