Imagine

Just imagine, can you imagine?

Just, you can if…

Can you, if you even try?

I want to imagine things we meet in our histories and traditions. I want to let imagination fill in what may have been; said, seen, or felt, and maybe even what was. 

Can imagination give us a place at the conversations, where St. Peter told St. Mark about Jesus? 

Imagination mustn’t be allowed to create history, that would be dishonest, but as it attempts to accept the challenge of Jesus’ parables to use our imagination, it might become a way to be captured by His message. 

From His parables, through imagination His message. 

From His history, through imagination His story, 

From my imagination, His life in me.

Proverbs 27:17 “People learn from one another, just as iron sharpens iron.”

Maybe…? Mark and Peter sharing their memories of being challenged harshly by Paul?
