Never Ordained by Raymond A. Foss

A lesson in the metaphor
the body, the work, the worth
of each member, lay and clergy
equal in ministry, for carrying on
work of the son, the Christ
He was never ordained, never set apart
sitting at the feet of Levi,
never trained in seminary
He was a teacher, a prophet
itinerant healer, a tradesman
for most of his life
But he was God.
We all, no matter our part,
our station, our work
We all have a part in the body
to share God’s love

August 31, 2008
1 Corinthians 12:12-27
and children’s message and
sermon, “All Work Is God’s Work”,
by Reverend Huntley Halvorson,
Suncook United Methodist Church
