I’m sorry, but your
coming is simply not enough.
We already have leaders and saviors
and people in our lives who come … and then go,
leaving us impacted — perhaps a little stronger or maybe
a little more wounded — but still leaving us alone and
bracing for the next one who will come, and go,
from our lives. Your coming, Mr. Jesus,
is not satisfactory good news.
You came once already,
left again, and we are
hardly at a loss for
people to come
