(How many times did Jesus say "take heart, for I Am with you always?" And even if you only heard or read it once, didn't it resonate within us, as if heard countless times?) 
Jesus gave us the Sermon On The Mount
The more I look around
The more I listen and read
I’ve observed "Surmounters" of His Sermon
Those who believe to have arisen above to a higher ken (calling)
And feel the need to interpret, analyze, theologize…
Devote their lives to telling us…
What the scriptures really mean
It means one thing in Greek and another in Latin and yet another in Hebrew
They mean well but are they really just lending towards further confusion?
Why were those gathered there the simplest of folk
The brightest, the poorest, the richest, the sick, the robust, the young, the old
able to receive the same message just as it was intended?
Spiritual Director…
What is your Sermon of the day?
I will listen for The Holy Spirit
Regardless of anything you have to say
All of the pretense brought to the fore
is deeply troubling and beginning to heavily weigh
Salaried and desperate for some new original twist
To keep us within sway
Churches are closing their doors more and more
And you still don’t get it do you?
So sad… 
God is simply a by-line nowadays to many
A name uttered as a last ditch desperate grab for attention,
a sound bite… 
A mention with dubious intentions
A cheap grab for ratings
on the nightly news
(Not all who say they have been called, truly have been)
