Raymond A. Foss Poems

In the Same Way by Raymond A. Foss

We are sent, out into the world,
the same ministry, the same mission
bringing a hope, a belief, a joy
unlike any other, incomprehensible
in strictly human terms
in the same way we are blessed,
sent forth, out into the world
as Christ himself was,
with a blessing from the father,
a laying on of hands;
but hands we cannot see
bodily imbued, touched by the holy spirit
that which coursed over the chaotic waters too
at the moment of creation
the same breath of God
giving life, filling us now
in the same ministry as the son
the same message of love
in the same was, filled by the spirit
resting on us, entering into us
in the same way commissioned
to bring the good news of the father’s love
into a broken and hurting world
