Raymond A. Foss Poems

Our Beliefs Diminished by Raymond A. Foss

Our law, our beliefs diminished
nothing further, nothing more
if the ink on the page
is the sum of our faith

Such was his lesson
there in their presence
while dining in the open
where strangers may enter in

Needing to see through eyes
guided, informed by God’s love
seeing the world truly
offering hope to those in need

Going beyond our comfort
our tradition and our history
giving generously, without reservation
meeting their urgent needs

Not constructed, trapped
by hidebound rules
seeing with the eyes of Jesus
offering all we can
