Prelude

Luke 1:76
And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High;
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,

The Advance Party
Called to prepare the way
Not the one
But called to make the road smooth
What an awesome responsibility
To lay the groundwork
To blaze the trail
And then to step back
Slink into the shadows
Out of sight
There are few of us with grace enough
to be fore runners
Few of us who are skilled
at keeping out of the way
when the time comes
for another to step up
and continue the work that we have begun
We give thanks for prophets
For fore runners
For trailblazers
And pray for the grace
to be more like them
as we prepare the way
for Incarnation.
