Lessons of the Son by Raymond A. Foss

The wisdom of Solomon,
a pale reflection, blurry image
The Son spoke of the Father’s love
a parable of the loving father,
a prayer modeled on his life
reverently living, the pious life
Praying to the father, in heaven,
as we would to our fathers,
if we could find the words
these words, a mirror on the father
echoing back his love
a hope for life in relationship
with him, always, thy kingdom here
our lives an offering
to our real father

Luke 15:11-32, Lectionary Year A, Prodigal Son,
the Lord’s Prayer, and the sermon,
“Jesus’ Teachings on Fatherhood”,
by Rev. Huntley Halvorson,
Wesley United Methodist Church,
Concord, NH, Father’s Day, June 15, 2008
