After John 17:26

Discipleship begins with
Remembering who you are.
Discipleship means leaving 
this world, leaving
this culture, ignoring
the voices (print, digital, real)
that counsel us, cajole us, 
advise us, intimidate us, 
bully us, threaten us
to follow them.

Discipleship means
to understand how little
the world offers us,
the transient flash, as
it whispers to ignore
the eternal.
Discipleship means
community, because it
happens as we gather
together, teach each other,
speak with each other,
break the bread and
drink the wine 
with each other, love
each other. Discipleship
is what we share 
in common.
