The church is my refuge.

It is the comfortable & pleasant shade that I go into to get away from the scouring heat of the cruel world & all its apathy.

It is the oasis that provides the cool & refreshing water that quenches the thirst in the hot & dry desert that is the world, which tests ones faith & sanity.

I look upon the church with unwavering faith, love, & trust – three things for me that remain strong, steadfast, & will never rust.

For it is the majestic symbol of God's love for us through Christ Jesus & the Apostles.

It is the pleasant fragrance that intoxicates me with a sense of peace; a fragrance that provides me with a sense of relief from the foul odor of negativity in the world.

The church is my refuge; in solace, I kneel & sit.

I pray for the arms of God to hold & comfort me with warmth & care; away from the cold & indifferent world out there.

I Know Where God Comes From

by Steven Williams
(New York)

I Know Where God Comes From

Like the Son is called Light,
As the Sun shines so bright,
I know where God comes from.

As Darkness is called Night,
And the Moon bears his plight,
I know where God comes from.

Like the Stars shining bright,
In the midst of the night,
I know where God comes from.

In the fight for your Life,
Between Darkness and Light,
I know where God comes from.

Satan, Heaven, initial fight?
Creation, Darkness, preemptive strike.

Who, what, why, not when?
The strength of Darkness!
The strength to comprehend.

Calculating… pride, Satan falls into sin.
Misled by the power of Darkness,
And his ability to comprehend.

Is Darkness wrong or was he right,
Exerting his authority prior to God’s Light?

To dismantle the above by the power of His Word?
It’s like Satan casting out Satan, that’s what I heard.
I know where God comes from.

Spiritual poem about rest

by Tim Sumpter
(Ockbrook, UK)

Burning bush by Tim Sumpter

Burning bush by Tim Sumpter

Making Time for the Burning Bushes

I hurry past,
anxious, fast,
coiling tighter
in my rush
and miss the
serene charism
of another burning bush,
extinguished like
the last, in the wake of speed.

I refused
to take rest,
so rest took me
out of the rat-race
and in that place
illness kept, slept,
wept and wrestled
me free to forsake speed.

My limp keeps
me firm in slow,
and in that place,
free of care,
I now see
burning bushes everywhere
I go,
and make time to shoeless be.

(c) Tim Sumpter (March 2015)

"One thing that struck me was the stripping of ego in the work. Most of us have a comfy ego façade, but weakness and disease tore Katherine’s away. The poems in Be Loved Beloved come from the heart."
