Team Sport by Raymond A. Foss
Christianity is a team sport,
so the pastor said that morning from the pulpit.
Sometimes it can feel lonely, different from that
in the congregation. With gifts of poetry,
gifts of prophesy, it can anyway.

He spoke of the life of the Christian,
of quiet time for prayer, alone in our closet,
time for bible study, for immersing in the word
the lessons of the living God.
But there is the need for together time,
for time in the spirit with fellow believers,
in group study, in conversation, in service.
In communion, in the sanctuary, the soup kitchen,
the prison, the office, the marketplace of ideas
We grow best, in the company of Christians,
learning together the humble service we are called to
to follow the example of the creator,
the savior, the Son and the Father
