Easter 4B – April 26, 2015
St Stephen Lutheran Church, Pittsburgh, PA
The Rev. Maurice C Frontz III STS
It seems that every Christian of a certain generation
used to memorize the 23rd Psalm.
Whenever I read it in a nursing home,
I would always use the King James translation,
rather than the newer ones we use in worship,
because it was sure that half of the group
would be reciting it with me,
some who hardly knew where they were
and almost never spoke
praying it reverently with eyes closed,
transported back to who knows when.
