O kinky and beloved People:

A Master is always in service to the slave’s Path.

Well, thank you Holy Spirit! I just heard
the Gospel, in a Playground full of people who,
it seems, may be otherwise trying to ignore you;

because I remember my Master said,

Those who want to be great must become slaves of all.

Then He took a basin and a towel,
serving like a slavewoman among free men,
in service to the Path, your life and love itself,
which He embodied:

Those who are blind see, those who are deaf hear, those who are lame walk…

Walk into a new dignity, the freedom to be all things to all people,
ambassadors, slaves, lovers, sons and daughters, friends,
a fluid and queer movement of the Spirit
that nevertheless secures and grounds our true selves,
the ones we will meet fully only

at the End of the Path.

O kinky and beloved People:
Whatever you think you understand

about power and submission,
authority and self-giving:

Jesus got there first,
giving it up–and thus gaining it–
for you.

And what I would say to you,
I say to my own kinky and Beloved soul:
repent and believe the Gospel,
because Today you go free.
