She didn’t believe in women pastors,
yet she remembered…
nowhere did it say that the little child
who would lead them,
had been born a man.
There was one Bible, one God, one Jesus,
but she wondered about other worlds,
& realized that not everything was in the Bible—
only what we needed to know.
As they spoke to God, they found the answers to their problems.
They wondered if they had come from Him,
or from something deep inside themselves He had given them.
She was in love with a priest,
who loved God more.
He could not see that loving her—
one of the least among them—
was loving God.
Abraham began to suffer in his old age, to hear voices,
& sought to silence the lamb that was his,
prized above all others,
but the angel stopped his madness,
for human sacrifice was abhorrent to God.
