Amazing

The people who heard Jesus
    were repeatedly amazed.
Are we today so sophisticated
    that we are immune to
    amazement?
Can we know that he was
    crucified,
Goodness and Compassion
    and Love
nailed upon the tree,
    and go about our business
        of preparing Easter dinner?
Can we know that he arose
    from the dead
    and walked the earth
    and ate and spoke
    with his followers
and sit unamazed in the pew
    as though we cannot hear
    the WORD OF GOD?
O God of Jesus Christ,
    the amazing thing
is our lack of amazement
    in the face of your
AMAZING AMEN!
