Poem: When the glory of the presence

Proper 24 year A
Exodus 33: 12 – 23

When the glory of the presence

of the ground of all our being

leaves transcendent worth and wonder,

enters in the realm of seeing,

are we blinded by the dazzle?

Is this presence binding? Freeing?

How do we discern God with us

in a world where much is plunder;

where it seems we've lost our vision...

18th Sunday after Pentecost, Exodus 33: 12 – 23, poem, Moses, God’s presence, holy, vision, pride, change, renewal, reaffirmation, transcendent
