Great piece of poetry on life and church

Take back the poetry

Spotted this video thanks to Anna Drew, Methodist Church media person, about all sorts of reasons to avoid church – and then go anyway.

I thought of it when I found this. I wrote it a couple of years ago when my wife asked me the old “What do you want out of church?” question…

We come together

because things are not right
because we don’t know what to make of the world
because we are bewildered
because we need shelter

We come together

because peace has not come
because your kingdom is a long time coming
because your will is hardly clear
and yet brutally clear
because we are threatened on all sides
because we have lost our way

We come together

because we notice the gap
between who we know we are
and who we want to be
and we feel giddy on its edge

We come together
