Christforums

.... an orthodox (true and correct when contrasted with Liberal theology) Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism. Those who would challenge the peace and harmony that we enjoy here as fellow believers are directed to another website.

I tried this for a while.

I went to a church with no clergy

Where members all sat in a ring

Each one anxiously waiting to hear

If another would say any thing

 

Some days we were swamped

With words so abundant

That all cups ran over with joy

And others a silence akin to a deafness

Was the best that their tongues could employ

 

Sometimes I sat in that church when twas empty

Waiting for hours upon end

Hoping for someone to turn up and join me

And speak words the silence to rend

 

But often they joined and were silent

I guess they’d no message to feed

But if all who are gathered are feeling the same

Who’ll cater to everyone’s need?

 

So we sat there in silence till one came along

who gave us a word of true worth

Then all of a sudden we’re back in full swing

New treasures of faith to unearth.

I have never written a poem, however, I like to read poetry and listen to poems. I studied art and literature in college, therefore, I take interest in poetry. When I was in college, we were required to not only interpret poems, but also write own poems. However, I always chose to interpret instead of writing.

I found the poem very meaningful.
