The Church that would not hide

Persecuted believers in China sit in the rubble of their demolished Church.

Though now you see me in all my glory,

once upon a time it was a different story.

I was planted as a seed of hope.

But the Hope roused Evil,

and it came to choke me with it's Master's rope.

So I should no longer have been,

But lo! The Church of Christ is not only what is seen!

Though they had intended for me to die,

This cannot be. I can only thrive!

Indeed I am the Body of Christ,

and what am I, if not Eternal Life?!


The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it!

I just love your poems and reflections!

By the way, are you referring to the "Church of Christ" as in the denominational church organization or are you referring to the "Church of Christ" as in the body of Christ, which incorporates all protestant denominations and reflects all God's children?

Peace be with you - L.R.

Hi LR,

I am referring to the body of Christ.

Thank-you for your comments.

God bless you.
