Today’s text

John 14:18-21

I shall not leave you orphans; I shall come to you. In a short time the world will no longer see me; but you will see that I live and you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father and you in me and I in you. Whoever holds to my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me; and whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and reveal myself to him.'


You invite me into a great circle of intimate connection, Jesus. You in the Father, me in you, you in me: one great shared love coursing among us.

And there, in that circle of love, to find the secret stream that draws all time and space into its flow.

And that flow is you, Holy One, your triune life.

I have no idea where that blessed current will carry me. But unknowing is a way. So I come again begging.

Carry me in that great flow that has been going on since the universe was darkness. Carry me in the current of love you are. Carry me wherever you please even though I may fight you all the way. Draw me deep and dizzy into the spinning whirlpool where you are in the Father and I in you and you in me.

For then only am I free. Then only do find within this love for your command. Then only do I know, truly know, that I am not and never will be an orphan.

Pr. David L. Miller
