I believe in jesus
who prioritized wholeness and healing
of skin and mind and womb
over political institutions
and the institution of the tabernacle;
I believe in the man
who came to preach the way of death as the way to life
and wasn’t afraid to walk that way
to give us a fine demonstration;
I don’t know if I believe in the resurrection
but perhaps that’s not as important as the message of the resurrection,
that love can die and still conquer all
for there are, sadly, great numbers of people
who believe in Jesus Christ the Son of God,
and yet are petrified to die,
who listen and read and kneel and profess
and yet have not heard his words
