Ancient Paths

Our Father,

The ancient boundary lines are covered hidden by the litter of the centuries.  The ancient boundary stones are overgrown by millenia of religious, cultural and political traditions.  We follow maps marked with the lies and errors of those who came before us and continue to further deface them with our own foolish notations.   Even a true map can be "read" to suit the purposes of predators and mad men.

Even what one generation learns the hard way is discarded and forgotten by the next, even while the wounds left by the hard lessons are bleeding still.

We no longer can tell left from right, up from down, sick from healthy, or true life from walking death.

We need your guidance more than ever.  Lead us by your Spirit, in Jesus' name!
