All Just a Bit Too Much

All Just a Bit Too Much

April 10, 2017
The Rev. Lonnie Lacy

I wish we weren’t so guarded
in the ways that we love Jesus.
I wish we weren’t so polite,
so proper,
so well mannered,
so ordered,
so easily offended.

I wish, like Mary,
we could lose ourselves,
that we could pour ourselves out,
that we could let it all be just a bit . . .
too much.
