Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost


There exists in the forests of Mississippi and, I assume, the more wooded areas of Kansas and Missouri a phenomenon known as the “wood deer.” The wood deer is encountered by those who stalk the white-tailed venison and do so perhaps in excess and for too many hours consecutively. It has no real life of its own but is a figment of the mind and refers to the fact that if one stares into the random interplay of branches and kudzu and pine long enough looking for the gentle curves which define the white-tailed deer that one will eventually see one, whether or not there is one actually there.
