Luke 17: 26-37
"The time of the Son of Man will be just like the time of Noah— everyone carrying on as usual, having a good time right up to the day Noah boarded the ship. They suspected nothing until the flood hit and swept everything away.

"It was the same in the time of Lot—the people carrying on, having a good time, business as usual right up to the day Lot walked out of Sodom and a firestorm swept down and burned everything to a crisp. That's how it will be—sudden, total—when the Son of Man is revealed.

"When the Day arrives and you're out working in the yard, don't run into the house to get anything. And if you're out in the field, don't go back and get your coat. Remember what happened to Lot's wife! If you grasp and cling to life on your terms, you'll lose it, but if you let that life go, you'll get life on God's terms.

"On that Day, two men will be in the same boat fishing—one taken, the other left. Two women will be working in the same kitchen—one taken, the other left."

Trying to take all this in, the disciples said, "Master, where?"

He told them, "Watch for the circling of the vultures. They'll spot the corpse first. The action will begin around my dead body."

As the sun rises and sets...
As the moon peeks out
in a pitch black night
among dancing glowing stars

I watch my love, my creation
so wonderful and confused...

Come together now
and light the darkness
illuminate your hurting places
Loving touch embracing
wind worn and life-bruised faces

As leaves change dancing down
to the autumn colored grass
Let your ways change from
fear to faith in one another
from hate to love
selfishhness to other-ishness
And dare to dream of something beautiful
