Poem based on 1st Advent Mark 13:24-31

With the tribulation upon us
And all the heavens
And earth crashing down around us
We stand
Knowing the God of love
Knowing the promises of God
That the God of Abraham and Hagar and Sarah and Keturah
Isaac and Rebekah
Jacob and Leah and Rachel and Bilhah and Zilpah and Paddan Aram
Esau and Judith
Will be our God
And we will be God’s people
Even in these times
When all we know comes crashing down
The God of creation
Will be our God
Beyond the realm of time
Tribe, class, nation
Beyond all the limitations that seem so real

Only to us
