A Halloween Blessing

A Halloween blessing for all who aspire to be nightmares when evil sleeps too peacefully.

Listen, God is howling at the moon.

Let the strange come out of hiding.

Let imagination rise from the grave.

Let all who are named Freak, Monster, Weirdo, or That Which Others Should Fear call out to the gifts in each other. When destruction is made normal, we need all the wild, all the odd, all the unusual we can get.

Blessed be the tricksters, stirring up trouble when evil desires calm.

Praise God for the prophets who linger with us like ghosts.

Hallelujah to the children, knocking on the hearts of strangers,chasing joy from door to door.

When evil is lurking in broad daylight, we practice our courage in the night.

Nourish that which has bite, unleash the impulse to scream, feed the desire to haunt the unjust.

Let us keep trying on possibilities like costumes, until we discover the ones that will leave evil trembling.

Rev. M Barclay, enfleshed (from Facebook)
