I want a people;
a group to belong to.
I want a loving community – the Utopia
of heaven here on earth.
A church without the church with
Christianity only heard in echoes.
Those who love and worship Jesus
In a mosque
at the call of a minaret.
In a cathedral
at the call of the bell.
The call of the Tower beckons us to imagine who
God is and we are.
I want a people who adore
The logos of everything, for everything.
I want a people
Who is open?
I am closed
off from Christianity.
It does not own Christ.
It owns insanity. To believe it could restrict
the Lord of Logos to its petty religion.
Of me not to realise that this very people whom
I want to be family with is
The church with or without its religion.
The people who suffered
for their Lord.
These people are not kept lock and chain by their religion,
They are free.
Whether Christianity is an echo in the church
or it deafens me. It does not matter.
Because our Lord is Christ, who is the centre.
