The Fervent Atheist
She left the tent in holy fervor,
Hell-bent to spread the Word.

Her faith she shared in earnest.
There was no doubt God’s love...Read More

The All-Purpose Lifeline
Two men went to spy Jericho
Before Israel conquered it;
They lodged in Rahab's house,
She hid them on her roof.
Their only means of escape -
A line of rope that led them down the wall
To safety.

They embraced that line of rope red,
They embraced...Read More

When trouble looms
We often turn inward
We’re grateful when others take us to medical appointments
Bring casseroles

He prayed not only for Himself
But...Read More

and riding its momentum 
out across the chasm
of an unreflecting void,

its waning, hopeful beep
an act of faith; there lies within,
a particle of us--
ready to embrace the one

A Difference
We can make a difference

We can wallow in the feat
Where all souls meet
At the foot of the world by which to greet
In bitter silence to its door chime ring,

Human nature gets its share
in wrestling with the ideals,
principles or philosophy of man,
an uphill encounter, a process within.

  Beyond human reasoning,
  God apparently takes his place
  to make us aware that he reigns

Each day begins as an act of faith.
We cross our thresholds and expect
That no cruel twist of fate
Will stay us from returning.
