“Living Lost”

John 12:20-33

“Jesus finds us lost and doesn’t really fix it the way
We want him to.

We want directions, maps, a path that is clear and
Unencumbered by cruelty, disappointment, and sorrow.

Jesus tells us we’re going to have to lose even more–
More frequently, more materially, more spiritually, more humanely.
Just more–the less we want to lose, the more lost we will be.

So, this whole living lost thing–it’s real–it’s here, it’s us, it’s
The ways life unfolds.

We live lost in order to find our way to the home that was always here…”
