The Bible

Ringing through this collections of poems is a great love for the Holy Bible, and a simple theme, that if the Bible is to have any meaning it has to be relevant to our present lives. There are many poems that take the reader to the heart of a Bible story, challenging one to consider the reality of what actually happened, – did Moses see a burning bush that was not consumed, were five thousand really fed from just five loaves and two fishes, was a violent tempest stilled? Were sin, disease and death really overcome? And interwoven with these Biblical accounts in verse or prose are other poems that show a searching out of thought and realisation that can be summarised in the simple knowledge that God is Love.

The earnest expectation is that for any reader any one of these poems may find for them an angel thought that brings comfort and healing, and whispers of God’s love. The lightest touch is all it takes for the gentle kiss of inspiration to overcome the direst circumstance and leave healing, peace and reconciliation.

Straightway I leave my mortal net, and follow Christ.
I’ve changed my job, and now, with employment new,
Seek out the immortal.
With bait of Truth, that man is the image of God,
I cast an unconditional net of Love, which gathers all.
It returns full, no break, no flaw,
But overflowing with gratitude,
A gathering into God’s Kingdom:
All needs supplied.

In daily service, I launch forth once more with Truth,
Led by Christ,
Rejoicing in the healing affluence of Love.
