Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

(borrowed from our church‘s Lenten blog)


in every church I’ve seen
there are people
in the wrong places:
the kitchen, the parking lot,
the lobby, the coffee pot

cooking, cleaning, talking, smoking
they are pacers, millers-around,
baby-whisperers and malcontents

sometimes, they look like
they’re avoiding ‘church’
but when I squint
and look again
I see that they’re
doing the thing itself
