A Parable of a Seed by Raymond A. Foss

The church, at its start
a parable of a seed
echoing the master’s words
in his parable of the mustard seeds
how mighty it has grown
each of us to care, to nurture
to take of its seeds
spreading them in our own time
in this place we are planted
to share God’s love
the message of Christ
to all we meet
little seeds of love
not meant to be kept
spread instead
to the ends of the earth

A Village Church

Our church, a village church
nestled in the heart, the center
the little place in the village
known by the mustard seeds
the little acts, simple kindnesses
offering a hand or an ear
prayers, a place of worship
a meal, a place to gather
little mustard seeds of love
planted in our neighbors’ hearts
one little act of love at a time

Unison Prayer
“Eternal God, who created us in your own image.
Enable us to fearlessly contend against evil and to
make no peace with oppression.
May we use our freedom with reverence, and
for the establishment of justice to the glory of
your holy name; through Jesus Christ our Savior.”
