From clock time, and into God time.
Forgive our obsession with
concrete metrics. So often,
it is how we are measured.
But as an investment and
an experiment in your realm,
we will stop measuring
timeliness and productivity
just for this one hour-ish, though
it does not come naturally.
In this pocket of God-time and God-space,
carved out from the everyday,
our hearts say let your kingdom come.
For the 2nd Sunday in Lent (Narrative Lectionary text Matthew 20:1-16)
