Baptismal GEM: Ken Cooper poem on Christ being God’s beloved everywhere, all the time!
Listen to "This Is my Beloved Son": https://youtu.be/ih9iIfKSeYw Matt 3:13-17 (B6)

Ken wrote: “The Word, the voice from heaven, says to all men “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased”. This Sonship was best expressed in Jesus Christ, our Master and Savior.

Jesus said to his disciples “if any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” [Matt.16:24]. When we metaphysically eat his bread and drink his wine, this is our true commitment to follow his example. He also said “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” His example is complete, his humility absolute, and the journey we have in following him has this eternal promise “Come and dine”, experience the blessings of Truth and Love, be God expressed.

Gethsemane GEM: Ken Cooper poem on Jesus letting God’s will be done then and always!

Listen to the poem "Just Let": https://youtu.be/7jVN7FAGklE

[Introduction to a poem by Ken Cooper on Bible citation B12, Matthew 26:36-45]
When we “trust” we “let”, and complete trust is the summit of self-abnegation, the humility which Jesus had, which acknowledges the presence of God as absolute and all in our lives. The Psalmist writes “If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.” Psalms 139:9-10.

Our journey is one we take together. It may well contain challenges, but God is always there, holding us safe. Letting go of material sense frees us to experience the divine, and demonstrate true sonship.

So, we can just let, live, and let Love be expressed! Whether in Genesaret, Gethsemane, wherever we are, God is in that place, and our journey is “big with blessings”.
