Grail Seeking

Originally published February 24, 2020.

So I’ve been on Vigil for a few weeks now, and Gideon was on Vigil over the weekend. So of course, when these two vigilants sat down in Gideon’s vigil tent, we talked about microphones (don’t forget to send me that link, Gid!)

But I have been thinking about what to say to my brother, and even though I’m still not able to write anything that encompasses the entire weekend, I am prepared to offer this vigil advice.

And before you laugh, take a real listen to the words, my friends. Because it’s EXACTLY what people have been telling vigilants for years.

Find your Grail, Gideon. I love you.

If you trust in your soul
Keep your eyes on the goal
Then the prize you won’t fail
That’s your grail
That’s your grail

So be strong
Keep right on
To the end of your song
Do not fail
Find your grail
Find your grail
Find your grail

Life is really up to you
You must choose what to pursue
Set your mind on what to find
And there’s nothin’ you can’t do…

So keep right to the end
You’ll find your goal my friend
You won’t fail
Find your grail
Find your grail
Find your grail
