Wednesday with the Wardens

On Christmas Eve, Gayle Harris sent this poem via e-mail. It speaks to us and we hope it does to you too.
MARY and JOHN

AT HAND

Imagine

Peace in our time.

Imagine

Love without borders.

Imagine

Broken bits healed.

Imagine

Delighting in difference.

Imagine

Communion, holy union.

Imagine

God dwelling among us.

Imagine

Plows over swords.

Imagine

Redemption the norm.

Imagine

Grace superseding.

Imagine

On earth, as in heaven.

 

Hope seeks only permission.

Hear the knock? Clear the path.

From imagine, expect. From expect, demand.

 

The dream of God, as near as our hands.

Imagine

(H. Mark Smith)
