Painful Lesson

 

Small Tendril Rises

 

Soft Glow Follows

 

With Raging Fire After

 

Bare Stubs

 

Blackened Timbers

 

Nothing Left To Salvage

 

Our Church Is Gone

 

Some Would Say

 

Never To Return

 

Parish Gathers

 

In Shock And Sorrow

 

The Church Is In Our Hearts

 

We Who Gather

 

Kneel And Pray

 

And With Faith Rebuild

 

The Sanctuary

 

We Are The Church

 

Walking In Christ's Company
