Election Day at First Church of the Heart
There once was a Church, “First Church of the Heart”
With the strangest distinction I have to impart.
There were 48 members, and it should be noted,
on the day of elections, every one of them voted.
Not a one of them pushy or preachy or snooty,
One by one, on their own, each one doing their duty.
And that in itself is a sign of some health:
A Church that’s engaged, and not just with itself.
When I tell you what happened, your feelings may change,
For this small, noble church took a turn for the strange.
Though the church wasn’t told — to salvage their pride
Every item they voted? 24 on each side.
Every vote for a candidate, every ballot and bout
Had another vote cast that just cancelled it out!
So the question to ponder, that comes to my mind:
Did First Church of the Heart end up wasting its time?
Are you kidding? Of course not! Any church is a treasure
That can differ in politics but worship together.
May we all be as active, accepting, a part
of the world that we’re in…
Without losing Our Heart.
Have a great week,
