The Forgiving Avenger
Peace, Justice, and Gospel


image from

We set urgent goals, make urgent plans, play urgent roles,
Pray urgent prayers, seek urgent interventions for urgent cares.

God quietly, silently, patiently hears our cries, our fears, our sobbing tears.

God speaks and cage-rattles as silently and patiently to our rage- battles.

And urgency gives way to intentionality ....
And rush to order ...

And we step into a different time-line where all that was slow
Is fast
And all that was fast
Is slow

And everything
Is right on time.

"Hear my prayer, O LORD;
give ear to my pleas for mercy!
In your faithfulness answer me, in your righteousness!"

(Psalm 143:1 ESV)
