Featured Poem:

Song from the Road

Long on this journey

   Long in these shadows

Far from the only home

   Low all our hoping

Deep the undoing

  Just the forsaken road


Voices we dream of

   Echoes remember

We all together there

   Heaven was once

Our song to be singing

    Hearts’ every word

In wonder and joy


             I am how your heart discovers

         All the hopes that sleep in you

          I am every silence calling

          I am Fountain I am Meadow

         I am every secret door           


Sing your ships into their harbors

Sing them bring them heal them home

Murmur every holy river

            I am Harvest       I am Blossom

            I am leaves around your soul


Come from the shadows, into the gleaming,

    Dawn of the day in us;                   

Open our lives to everything growing--

    How shall we say this grace?

World we are watching, world we are,

    Keep us in life with you.

How do we answer? How do we know?

    Love bring us closer. Mercy us home.


            I am how your heart discovers

         All the hopes that sleep in you

          I am every silence calling

          I am Fountain I am Meadow

        I am every secret door           


Sing your ships into their harbors

Sing them bring them heal them home

Murmur every holy river

            I am Harvest       I am Blossom

            I am leaves around your soul
