sunday sonnet #29


    “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.
