Kacey's Corner-Jesus Loves Us All
WELCOME TO KACEY'S CORNER!
This poem is true.
I was inspired to write it after visiting
a little Community Church where the
congregation is free to wear jeans and drink coffee
which is even provided in the lobby.
Not once did I even think of
questioning the genuine love of God
around all this casual atmosphere.
Most of the people were younger-
Kids sat happily with their snacks.
The Little Community Church
I had not been to Church for awhile
and my daughter was feeling down
She had seen an ad on the internet
about a little Church in town
She asked if I would go with her
and I went most willingly
Being used to larger Churches
I would be shocked at what I'd see
People strolled in with their coffee cups
some in t-shirts and jeans
There was a band, energetic and dedicated
so I could see the attraction for teens
While the young singers sang of their love of God
The words flashed on a screen
Soon we all were in the spirit
-it was a joyful, happy scene
The minister soon took his place on stage
in black shirt and jeans
He was young and dedicated
-his appearance fresh and clean
He read some Bible verses and flashed them on the screen.
Seeing them there was more effective for me
-a large scale "look at me" scene.
He spoke of marriage commitment
-and how the home must be ruled by God
Young folks listened intently
I saw no sleepy nods
There were no hymnals, not many Bibles
but there seemed to be no need
I felt God's presence all around
and I felt my mind was freed
from negative thoughts and constant worry
that had been with me for days
and I thought to myself, in this stark little Church
"God does work in mysterious ways".
