“Bring Good News, Bind up the Brokenhearted, Proclaim Liberty and the Year of the Lord’s Favor” (A Meditation on Isaiah 61:1-3)

Bring Good News

how badly we need
to hear the good news today–
news of hope and peace

Bind Up the Brokenhearted

bind up the broken,
wounded warriors of earth
come,  be healed, seek peace

Proclaim Liberty

what we call freedom
based on our human actions
is not free at all

true liberty, then,
is peace with all creation,
and the Creator

The Year of the Lord’s Favor

this could be the year
or, perhaps it was last year,
did you take notice?

look for God’s favor
not in church or government,
but in humble hearts
