Prayers for Pastors

I think I remember (a prayer for pastors)

I think
I think I
I think I remember

I think I remember
what to do on Sunday morning,
but I confess
after two weeks away
it feels unfamiliar.

My mind is full
and empty.

It feels daunting, too.
Some of those stories,
those passages,
are hard to preach.
Some of them are
positively sketchy.

You know, Holy One.
I know you know.

Half-naked dancing
by an Old Testament king
and a New Testament daughter –
what do we make of these
dirty dancing
ancient Trumps
and Kardashians?

I had the time of my life.

My mind is wandering,
and Sunday is coming.

I think I remember.
I think I
I think
