Mid-week Message


For it is God who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” - 2 Corinthians 4:6

One of the miracles of Jesus is being able to see God face to face. Seeing God in Jesus’ human face taught us that we can see God in each other, too. We are all made in the image of God and we reflect God’s image into the world. Rev. Sara Speed wrote the poem Where I Saw God Last to remind us that we see God in the many people who grace our lives. I invite you to reflect on this poem and to notice this week how you see the image of God in the people around you. Where did you last see God ?

The dimple in your right cheek,

the child playing peek-a-boo from his stroller,

the abuelita who spends her afternoons

in the park by 86th; the teenagers on the subway

who cannot control their laughter; Neil, my neighbor,

who always asks about you, the mother who whispers

a dozen times a day, “thank you, Jesus, thank you, Jesus, thank you, Jesus”;

the saxophone player at 42nd street, the poets,

the artists, the garden volunteers; the metro car driver

who sticks his head out the window to make sure we’re all aboard;

the man who gave up his seat on the subway, the kid in the

dinosaur pajamas who cannot be convinced they’re not

school attire; the teachers, the nurses, the taxi cab drivers;

the woman at the end of the block with her yappy dogs and her

books in the window, the lovers that lay sprawled out on park blankets,

the runners, the daydreamers, the sidewalk chalk artists;

John from upstairs whose favorite flowers are yellow tulips, the Persian man at the grocery who tells me to be safe when I leave, my grandmother in Georgia; my neighbor, the stranger; thank you, Jesus, thank you, Jesus, thank you, Jesus.
