We Just Moved Here: A Poetic Reflection on Ephesians

0 comments
by Laura Springer, M.Div.




We just moved here
from fear,
surrounded
by terrifying power.
This power
seemingly strong,
all stolen,
derivative.
Jesus: Ultimate.
We just moved here
from immorality,
surrounded
by enslaving freedom.
Jesus,
the Ultimate,
commands holiness,
makes whole,
gives extravagant
kindness and power.
We just moved here
from division,
kept apart
by walls.
No more walls,
but one people.
Hidden,
hinted,
revealed,
becoming.
Continuity,
one people
always
in Him.

Why poetry? Because theology is more than intellectual ponderings; it is also the voice of the heart.
