Fear Not! 

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness…. For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. (Isaiah 41:10, 13)

… God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (II Timothy 1:7)

The Healer

 Like a small pebble so gently tossed

Into the world’s large lake

Your prayer ripples my consciousness

From dreams, I now awake.

My heart a kite to wind unfurled

Rejoices at your prayer.

With Spirit’s updraft I can rise

From seascape into air.

The Light Across the Street

 The college sits across the street

No more than several hundred feet.

Our members pray, ready to greet

Students with questions, who answers seek.

 

The Christ awaits them at our door

Welcomes them in and gives them more

Than platitudes they’ve heard before.

You’re mine, Christ says, go forth and soar.
