First draft of some evening words on Jonah for Sunday:

on leaving home you cannot help yourself but enter somewhere you’ve never been that moment of crossing between familiar and adventure is filled with sacred possibility between two steps you have moved from a place shaped by memories to a place ready with new thoughts daring arguments that decide which way when there are no familiar stories to guide Some border places bless and others are burdens Some are escapes from the urge you deny that calls you to one thing when your body wants another and others bring freedom and an expanding sense of life and possibility borders are change-places where an unknown consequence is chosen without a word about results or outcomes they just invite the adventure so between shore and sea and storm and calm and fish and beach and vine and Nineveh sleep and wake yes or no the whole kingdom can rise or fall such sacred moments found in each stepping across the border each day makes.
