Sermon prep: or, choosing the other way ’round.

Wrestling with the texts
we will hear on Sunday before I preach them–
I think,
I hope,
my heart is a different shape.

How I hear the text
depends

upon what I have decided
about the character of God.

It really does matter,
my friends:
does Jesus look like God,
or is it, instead,

the other way ’round?

Selah.
