Collect for Equality

by K.M.P. McGee

‘Mary has chosen the better part, 
which will not be taken away from her.’ (Luke 10:42)

Galilean storyteller.
Defying the cultural standards of your day,
you defended Mary’s right
to sit at your feet as a disciple.
You publicly witnessed her worthiness
to receive and teach your transformative message.

Give us the courage to believe
our own eyes and ears and hearts,
so that we may live into
your timeless and inclusive love story
as a balm for this broken world.

Let it be.

K.M.P. McGee, a graduate of the Ecumenical Institute of Theology at St. Mary’s Seminary, is an aspiring poet and public theologian. She lives in Baltimore, MD with her husband and dog.
