Who Am I?

And Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. And on the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” And they told him, “John the Baptist; and others say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.” And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.” And he strictly charged them to tell no one about him. Mark 8:27-30

Who Am I?

On the long winter road
a journey of discovery
finding power and family
seeking a way to find God
within the very human.

We walk and the dust flies
we sing as we struggle along
the road ahead winds away
the darkness shrouds tomorrow
and we cling together for comfort.

Along the way we touch a chord
deep within each of us we know
we are made of heaven and earth
dust and water spirit and fire
God moving along with us
finding us a way home.

Some people have turned away
some have shunned and jeered
others have tried to kill
the holy and the love they see
we are targets the worst of our kind.

We carry the God songs
light the torches of Creator's spirit
shout despite the fear and hate
because love has found us
love has made us family now.
