so as these luscious opportunities present themselves
to co-create our work place
and other things of great earthly importance,
Steven’s question about which house
we want to build
inevitably arises (Acts 7: 48).
truly, the options between heaven and earth
it all could be this, it all could be that;
right and wrong seem to be trivial parameters in this.
and anything worthwhile takes time
to be formed and reshaped and reiterated.
so at the end of the day,
may at the heart of these ponderings, actions, commitments, darings,
lie faith, hope and love,
so that even if some of it may not last
or turn out differently from the way
it was dreamed up,
put into motion,
set on its course,
it was true and valid then and there.
when building things,
the art lies in holding them loosely, trustingly,
and offering them up
as a sacrifice, a service
for that which is just
so much greater
