Surprising Jesus,

this is the season when you appear around corners,

through closed doors,

traveling along the road, or letting us put our hands in your side,

breathing on us, or feeding us breakfast.

You do the most ordinary

and the most extraordinary of things.

Keep us alert, we pray, to moments of resurrection.

Open our eyes to the places where you appear among us,

between us

and within us.

In your name and spirit, Amen.

Mary Austin is the pastor of Westminster Church of Detroit, a diverse Presbyterian church.  She blogs from time to time at Stained Glass in the City.
