Dearest Church

If we were to stop
Or ridiculous bickering
And really live the message
That first brought
Each one of us
Into the presence of God,
How would that change
The entire world?
Would it keep
Angry, evil folks
From destroying,
And killing in the name
Of our God?
Probably not one bit
But maybe just one
More person would see
The truth in our God’s love
And not become
Deluded by anger and hate
And think it’s okay
To judge and destroy
And would open their eyes
And act in the kind of love
That drew us all to God
In the first place
Dearest church,
I want to live
In that world
Let’s start the new year
By making that world
