A Caring Man

There comes to us each Thursday morning

One very interested in our group sharing

The texts to be used the next Sunday

His explanations of the verses help hear what they say

Our questions asked, sometimes simple, sometimes deep

His answers almost never put us to sleep

The Spirit speaks through this spiritual man

Understandable words spoken like few can

An hour Bible study, most times extended by half

Quite often interspersed with a hearty laugh

Who is this teacher/preacher sent to us to speak

Knowledgeable words our hearts seek

That one who longs for God's word, our hearts to fill

The one known to all of us as our friend, Pastor Bill

    Thank you for your kind comment. It is uplifting to have someone appreciate what a person writes, especially considering that I began writing poetry only 10 months ago at the age of 69. Thanks again
