the marquee said it large

bold lettering making bold promise

“Speaking Truth in a False World”

and in smaller letters, underneath

“Jeremiah 5; Jeremiah 6 & Isaiah 30”

knowing the world in which these men lived

knowing the message which these men spoke

I went

looking forward to learning since seeing

I went

with eyes open, so eager to see

I went

with ears open, so eager to hear

I went

eager to learn to better speak Truth

to an appallingly desperate world

I went, eager for encouragement

I left, overcome by despondency

careless teaching having failed marquees promise

to satisfy the substance of my need

and worse, much, much worse

careless teaching unknowingly misrepresenting Truth
