Raymond A. Foss Poems

Christ is Risen by Raymond A. Foss

As a community, a congregation
in that holy place, that holy ground
as the body of Christ,
intoning the words, differently
as the heaven on earth, the glimpse of the kingdom
anticipating the heavenly banquet
the meal, a foretaste of the endless feast
saying the words in a special way
the mystery of our faith,
a living risen Lord, Emmanuel
God walking with us, now, in these present days
walking beside us, as we journey
as we seek to be Christ to our neighbor
to this troubled world, in need of hope
We believe, we spoke that belief
our voices together, speaking living stones
the body of Christ proclaiming his victory
presently felt, living in us today, this day
Sharing around the sanctuary, this humble space
this living room of God

April 28, 2008
The "mystery of faith" from the Great Thanksgiving
versus the Apostle's Creed
Walk to Emmaus
