I Don’t Know Where I Am Going!

I don’t know where I am going.

I see churches without walls

his people gathered

their collective

becomes the power

to be authentic

to be the gospel

not preach the gospel.

I don’t know where I am going.

God quietly beckons

to the unknown 

Mine becomes ours

in communion born of love

lived out in gospel verses

written on walls

that divide.

I don’t know where I am going.

I see the face of God

shining in sparkling waters

healthy foods

education

holistic care

equality in all.

I don’t know where I am going.

I see his face

in the chance to be young

imaginations freed

to reorder and

change our world.

A chance to be old

wisdom well shared

aging valued.

I don’t know where I am going.

The poverty of spirit

replaced by hope

and love

equal value recognized

celebrated.

Joy joins hands

finds its space

settles in.

I don’t know where I am going.

Together across borders

man made

no longer separated

but a people

of one and many.

A chance for honor.

A chance for peace.

I don’t know where I am going.

Finite time dictates urgency

learning confined to

relationships

and shared bread

professors seated

books aside.

I don’t know where I am going.

Meaning becomes

self emptying love

that embraces blind trust

mind and body

open to God’s love

God’s plan

God’s time.

Control

never owned

loses.

I don’t know where I am going.

But I am trying to follow.
