by Mark Weinrich
This creature of control is a slippery beast. I cast my nets and tighten the ropes hoping for once I can capture this writhing and wild thing. Then just when I think I have it contained it breaks away. So I contrive again and cast my nets, and find to my dismay I am the creature trapped, struggling in the web of my making trying to control the unknown. Jesus said, “who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?”
