July 1985

 

you stand before us

in fear

for I would be fearful

and grief

for I would have wept

and yet you did not give in

to the temptation of self

but rather

you asked us

to pray for you

to care for yours

you even joked about

the sharing of churches

 

I will pray for you

care for yours

laugh with you

and will you please

pray for me

that in despair

of even now

I may live the gospel

as you have done

and show others

why I live

 


 

To Glen Jackson, a man of God,

and pastor of Port Perry United Church,

Jacquie was playing the organ for them.
