Ending, Beginning: a Sermon Fragment


When the revenant came down
We couldn't imagine what it was
In the spirit of three stars
The alien thing that took its form
Then to Lebanon
Oh, God
The flashing at night, the sirens grow and grow
Oh, history involved itself
Mysterious shade that took its form
Or what it was, incarnation
Three stars
Delivering signs and dusting from their eyes

Concerning the UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois, Sufjan Stevens

For the Full and Final Text of this sermon, please see December 3, 2006.

Loved reading your sermon. Reading your thoughts on loss reminded me of my father's death, how consuming those thoughts and feelings can become.

Blessings to you.

P.S. Thanks for your comments on my blog!
