"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

Ascension Day

Standing on the platform you
radiant and shimmering with life we
heavy with endings and change all
shaking with the coming move.

Speaking words golden and strong you
empower change and terrify and we
silent and trembling feeling change
rattling through our feet.

Shaking ground holy and bright you
exit and we go forth trembling hearts
leaden arms fluttering spirits
the road ahead is not clear.

Traveling your words echo
in foreign tongues and exotic fruits
common water, common family we welcome
your family and are never at home.

Our voices quaver with age yet strong
the end of our age coming children born
across the world babbling joy without exclusion
a willing loving home for all.
