3 Haiku spacer 3 Haiku
BY: Ellis Potter

Mary

Magnolia blossom
Giving beauty and fragrance
Fades into freshness

Apple blossoms rise

Apple blossoms rise
And fall always in the world
And inside my mind

You already are
Do whatever you want to
In Christ with others

Smoked Glass

Purely beginning
Burning through various deaths
Our hearts turn to ice.

Falsely beginning
Purified by Spirit’s fire
Our hearts melt to flesh.

spacer This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.

Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
