Out of this Abyss

Is it not preposterous 
to sit on a hill and pray
just two of us; 

Surrounded by armies 
beyond comprehension,
trusting they are there.

Unseen by most
these chariots of fire
enact a new world. 

Out of wounded histories,
fractious neighbourhoods, 
trust restored in fiery places;

Here relatedness, 
not force, bathe fearful people
in the sweat of grace.

No fast paced intentions here- 
just engaged relatedness
to birth alternative possibilities;

When deep honesty and courage
join with Heaven’s chariots of fire,
love's wisdom quells oppression's rage.
