Raymond A. Foss Poems

Preparing is Worship – v2 by Raymond A. Foss
Printing the bulletins
cleaning the rugs
laying out the vestments
the pouring of the cups

Buying the bread
typing the words to share
all of the work behind the scene
as important as the rest

Preparing is worship
as much as the words read out loud
the little things matter so much
in the kingdom of God

All of us able, each in their own way
to share our gifts, our service
whether mowing the lawn
or singing in the choir
