Just start walking.
Leave the pew behind.
Everything else falls away.
All that was dead comes to life.
Pastures and valleys. Fields and streams.
Tiny violet flowers on the walls of quarries.
Wood and stone. Water and wine.
Teardrops and smiles.
A poor boy gets in line.
Just a taste. A nibble. A crumb from the table.
But he looks at his clothes.
But it’s all he’s got.
Just keep walking.
You’ve left the pew behind.
Everything else has fallen away.
All that was dead has come to life.
A thorny bush now a fruitful tree.
A man raises his hand:
“The Body of Christ.”
A child opens his mouth:
A shepherd boy ascends to the throne.
