Tether



+

You disguise us in flesh
As You did Jesus
Bodies tethering us to Terra Firma
Lest we fly
And forget our charge
The land-locked souls
For whom we are here

We are The Smugglers
of Your Image
Formed in us
Breathed in us
The which we bear into a world
Who is Longing to know
What You Really look like

Unlikely purveyors of Providence
We are found in just as unlikely places
 - As You always were
As You always are -

Not always in pews and pulpits and parishes,
More often in pubs and dog parks and sacred places of the sort

We move quietly among them
To deliver the Goods
To tether their spirits

to Heaven

"As He Is, so are we in this world."
1 John 4:17
