rest on the flight

"Rest on the Flight Into Egypt" by Luc Olivier Merson, 1879

saw this on naked pastor's blog. i don't know why it struck me, but it did - the muted colors? the mixture of beauty and danger in the story of the coming of god through a baby in a war-torn, occupied country? the risk mary and joseph took ... and the risk that any one of us takes, not when we're part of cultural christianity, but when we open ourselves up to the change that Love produces - demands - makes inevitable.

i wish for you in the next week or so that you feel Love. that it disrupt you. that it call you into places in which you may have to look for a small glow amidst seeming darkness, in order to find where god is at work.
in other words, that Love call you deep into your own life.
i'll see you there, even if i don't see you there.
