#508: Sermon Haiku #38: Galatians 3:1-9

Les Miserables played at the Dreamland
last week, I went to see it with David.
It ties in with what Paul
is trying to say in Galatians.
The pictures are of a Nantucket backyard soon to be
redone by the new owner.
It’s full of memory I hoped to capture.
What keeps us going 
When life becomes difficult?
Self-effort won’t work.

Jean Valjean learned grace
when it was freely offered
Javert never did
Which one was a slave?
Living by grace is freedom
Press on. Persevere.

Indwelling Spirit

Strengthens and helps us
to rest in God’s grace.
