All for One, One for All

No mere human order, Paul writes:
Christ alive impels these words.

Jesus makes all followers family:
no more damning litmus tests.

Pigeon-holing kills faith’s fledglings;
rules imposed divide, destroy.

Birth pangs seize me–freedom’s anguish,
Christ’s new life released in you.

Faithful churches grow as orchards
ripe with Holy Spirit fruit:

joyful, gentle, generous actions;
kind, patient, peace-building love.
