Raymond A. Foss Poems

King of the Mountain by Raymond A. Foss
A sermon on transformation
on seeing the world with the eyes of God
loving the world, wanting peace
transforming weapons, things of pain
into things for good, for food and farming
of a king like none other,
bowing as a servant, caring for enemies
taking on our sin
a king of the mountain,
unlike any childhood game
we ever shared
A king on the mountain
Golgotha, the Skull,
nailed to a cross
transforming our fate
our world, with peace
and with love

December 4, 2007 9:57am
Isaiah 2:1-5
Based on the sermon, “Preparing for Peace”,
by Reverend Peter Hey,
Wesley United Methodist Church,
Concord, NH, December 2, 2007
