To Intercede and To Reveal

It’s not in ceremonies or the sermons that they preach,

nor in the sacramental acts or lessons they may teach.

All ministers of any gods do best to intercede

when standing on the ground so heaven’s glory is revealed.


The fussiness of what is worn, and when to bow, or where

is meaningless when set beside the comfort of a prayer

admitting both the sin and begging mercy to forgive 

so once divided families can find the grace to live.
