What if?, by Pam Rocker

April 30, 2018

We get open invitation every day

to self-exclude, self-harm, self-annihilate

and these messages come from pulpits and pews

things said and things left in piercing silence

and it makes me wonder…

what if our sanctuaries could truly be sanctuaries? 

What if our hearts did not have to be fractured in order to be named as beloved children of God? 

What if we were invited every day, to be moe of ourselves instead of less? 

What if the chruch was the *first* place I could go and know that I would belong? 

Me. 

All of me. 

With my whole heart. 

What if? 

We are not a topic

We are the church.
