Election 2016

Poem by Annette Adams Elections come and elections go, All those of an earthly kind; But it’s the election that lasts forever That this writer has in mind. Our earthly one has left much debris In character digression: The need to win at any cost Left most with a bad impression. We hungered for statesmen […]

Lost and Found

Poem by Annette Adams I’m in search of something missing,    It’s been lost; it’s very scary. I’m afraid I can’t replace it,    It’s my old vocabulary. “Confession” and “contrition,” words    We often used to hear, Like “repentance,” “sin,” and “holiness”    Have seemed to disappear. The words that gave life purpose,   […]

Memorial Day

That “Miracle Message”

by Annette Adams Yes, it’s time for that “Miracle Message” again:“God really came down to this earth!”‘Didn’t come like a king, rather did everythingTo humble Himself in His birth. God’s love con-descended, estrangement was ended,We all could become reconciled.Though we were sin-blighted, His death re-unitedUs to this great God-in-Christ-Child. From manger to man covered such […]
