Christened

Cogent epistle from prisoner Paul
to fledgling churches in Caesar’s empire
hails Christ’s creative micro-macro rule.

Christ, God’s face: first in new life.
Christ, God’s transcendent wisdom embodied.
Christ, God’s all absolving blood-signed peace pact.

Leaders, writers, preachers like Paul always
thank God for faith-formed, love-filled listeners and
always pray God’s true wisdom radiates

with ever-strong Holy Spirit power
for patient, joyful, grateful, fruitful life,
all work, all words by Christ’s love ignited.
