Holy Awkwardness

The more we try
To keep from mentioning
The awkwardness
The more awkward it becomes
But when we start to talk
And each share our perspective
We start to move like Jesus did
We’re so used to reading
The Bible as verses
We forget that it happened
We forget there was this man
Named Jesus who turned society
On its head
He broke religious rules
Defied religious law
He said awkward things
He challenged the leaders
We’ve forgotten that He
Made the elite feel
So awkward that
They killed Him
We forget that
Jesus is awkward
That He’s a rebel
Because of how He loves
So if we follow Jesus’s lead
We’ll love like rebels
And make everything
Completely awkward
And if we do it right
We’ll reach a place
We can only call
Holy awkwardness
