gathered and sent

table, flame, icon; bread and wine
water in the font
word spoken and acted
for us to gather around

yet we join committees
sing in the choir
volunteer for yardwork and potlucks,
and go to brunch after sunday service

even though we're called to shout
through city streets and country roads
mountains and molehills
~ even through 'death-shadow valley'

we are called to shout hope for the present
becoming visible as G-d continues to
begin to fulfill what G-d
already did on the cross

then, in spite of committees and budgets,
the bread and wine, with the water and word
gather the church together to see grace
incarnate in/with/among each other
