“Run and run towards deliverance
And find and gather everything
Deliverance and riches
Run so quickly the thread breaks
With the sound a great bird makes
A flag always soared beyond”—Paul Éluard
I’m in Boston now for the marathon weekend. Everywhere I go I see runners milling about. Some look excited, others look anxious, but we’ve all come for the same event.
On Monday, we’ll cover the same 26.2-mile route from Hopkinton to Boston, but we’ll all be in our own race. Some of us are running towards something, while others are running away. May we run quickly enough to find and gather our deliverance and riches.
