We Press On

This is part of my Pastoral Prayer from 2/14/16. It was snowing in Burlington, and I wanted to incorporate the idea of snow into a prayer surrounding the temptation of Christ.

You see where we have been, where we are now, and where we are going. You beckon us forward into the bone shaking cold of chaos threatens to freeze us from the inside out, tempting us to stop and 16496241915_2014387252_o.jpgwarm by the fires of contentment and relinquishment. But still, we press on.

You wave us on forging a path through the snow bank while the blizzard of busyness threatens our view of you, tempting us to turn around and retreat to our homes of routine and comfort. But still, we press on.

You call out to us, speaking new life while the wind of work howls into our ear and threatens to drown out your voice, tempting us to seek shelter in the haven of bottom lines and progress. But still, we press on. AMEN
