The Plain Truth

If you, like me, were taught

-maybe not in words-

your worth depends on what you do

And if your gut, like mine, tells you

-not in words-

you believe this to be true

Then, in spite of what we tell ourselves in words

we, both you and I, have a situation:

Our worth, yours and mine, is a doctrine

we try to prove with our words and our deeds

Instead of the plain truth we live out each day

in the safety of each other’s arms.

Grace and peace to you this day…

Inciting evil

To stop another evil:

Is this doing good?

Song of Hope – Finale

I believe in God the Father

maker of heaven and earth

And in Jesus Christ, his only

his only son, our Lord;

Conceived by the awesome power

of the Holy Spirit

And born in a lowly stable

of the virgin Mary;

Suffered under Pontius Pilate

was crucified, dead, and buried;

He descended to the dead,

on the third day rose again.

He ascended into heaven

and sits at God’s right hand.

He will come to judge all nations,

his kingdom will have no end.

Jesus came

Jesus died

Jesus rose up from the grave

Jesus reigns in heav’n above

Angels bow before Him.
