By Love’s Command by Raymond A. Foss

We are to live
not be the ways of the world
not be some rigid orthodoxy
but by love’s command

Following our savior
living our God’s command
giving our lives to him
to all to lend a hand

We are the children of the king
if we choose to submit to him
to give our lives in his service
to spread the good news to man

Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost
earlier poem, posted to www.christianpoetry.org today
Not the Religion

not the religion, not the name we claim
proof of our humanity, our belief in love
in the way we life, in what we do
how we walk on this earth
humble, good to our neighbors
reaching out to those in need
no label, no denomination
nothing to set us apart
part of our family
the whole human race
offered grace by the creator
in relationship
we all find our place
