backstage
by andrew jones

it
appears
backstage
the kingdom of God
an entrance
unpromoted
without applause
in genres unused
in fonts never bold
in places hidden
corners

it
appears
backstage
eluding those
who scramble for the prized
who lust after the spectacluar
who never find themselves
backstage

the presence of God appears
among poor people
seekers
who are learning where to look

This is part of the global advent grid blogging ritual that kicks off today. Search here for other advent grid blogs. And come back on Dec 14th for the next one. If you want to play, Bob Carlton’s blog will get you started on the right track, since he is giving some leadership to this experiment and was the one who got my into it. i screwed up on my dates, I think, and should have posted this one on Dec 1. Sorry if i confused anyone. Always one in the bunch, isn’t there?
