Remembering My Words by Raymond A. Foss

In seeing the notation,
the theme of our worship,
remembering my words,
asking me if he had read my poem
that church was a verb

Asking if the pastor
had read my words
that she had remembered
making me mindful
in what I say
that she would hear
the verb of church
in how I live my life

Shyanne’s question to me at the start of church
about my poems:
To Church

A verb, going to church
as if that alone means anything
but our collective, our understanding
what is means to church
The service, worship, in the sanctuary
on the designated day, Sabbath
the act of worship, purposefully going
setting time apart in community
fellowship in the word
in a place, holy ground
to renew and share
to be fed
to go forth
to serve

1 Corinthians 12:12-27
and children’s message and
sermon, “All Work Is God’s Work”,
by Reverend Huntley Halvorson,

Living Church

Not a an adjective and a noun
living church an adverb and verb
our lives different
doing worship, in our daily lives
Monday to Saturday
going, being Christ
loving our neighbors
Sabbath rest, in the knowing
living church beyond the walls
outside the boundaries
out into the world
going, doing, church as way of living
open to the holy spirit
and wherever it may call
