Again, the Sunday experience; about returning throughout the week to God...

This is a good place for me to post a poem about returning to God. Notice I use the word "prodigal" to explain the sense of returning to self and God throughout the week. The Sunday experiencc is more than a one day experience.

Prodigal return, confession of mortality...(2002)
by Peter Menkin

Flesh, that yields
to time. Soul entreats
my failures not noticed
in return to God

with open heart.
Stricken with failures
of being away from You.

What's known, you are merciful.
What's known, Christ prayed.
What's known, the cup.

Allow my unbelief
become belief; strengthen us.
We are prodigal; I am.
