We struggle

in the tension

We struggle in the tension

of a call to walk in faith;

this challenge to be servants,

built on God’s astounding grace.

We place our hopes and terrors

in the wounded hands of Christ

and set out on a journey

which demands we pay a price.


We know we cannot settle

when the call of Christ has come:

in desert and oasis

or when faith and joy are numb.

Our life as holy pilgrims

is patterned on the Son:

his bruised and staggered footsteps

mark the journey we must run.
