Doing the "Sunday Thing

Doing "The Sunday Thing..."


What is the purpose of church

supposed to be?

It’s here on earth!  And includes

Christ’ followers like me!


Is this where I can find the presence

 of the Holy Spirit?

It’s one thing to say it….

 Another to live it!


It’s more than just a building,

or just a denomination.

It’s about the body of believers… 

All across our great nation!


I want to be a part of Christ’s body,

and worship him too!

May I daily express to him;

“Father, I love you!”


It’s more than just a Sunday habit,

 or just a “routine.”

It’s about serving a God,

who’s my lord and everything!


The next time I go to church,

I want to keep this in mind…

I will serve God 7 days a week,

not just on “my time.”


God is and always shall be bigger

 than any building I attend…

Time alone with him is an

excellent place to spend!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
