“Called as partners in Christ’s service”
sings quite easily as a hymn,
but we begin to get quite nervous
when the reality sets in
of what it means to live together
like our predecessors back in Acts:
bonded by a faithful tether,
always having each other’s backs.
Sounds good – but it can get real tough
when the conversation turns to cash
and making sure we all have enough
means I have to share my private stash.
“They’ll know we are Christians by our love”
means we have to learn to share our stuff.
