Beyond the Walls
Listening to the Pastor speak these words;
Letting them echo around within my soul.
Allowing the depths of the message to sing;
The Church is out beyond the walls.
This phrase shook the dust off my heart;
Reviving something that had grown cold.
Recognizing the power of selflessness;
The world is out beyond the walls.
Opening up the containment of my flesh;
Ripping open the seams of this body.
A tsunami rushes out into the unknown;
My body is out beyond these walls.
My heart pouring forth unmeasured love;
Not clinging to my security blankets.
Welcoming the warm flow of passion;
True love is out beyond the walls.
Nameless, formless, freed from results;
Giving from an open heart into the world.
This mighty river flowing from each of us;
Change happens out beyond the walls.
