The Cross of Love – a poem from Angela Coleman

Christ crucified is a symbol of LOVE

Love for all people, in all times and places

Love that heals, forgives, reconciles and re-connects

Love that feeds peace, hope, justice and joy

Love that touches all who are lost in the world

Love that brings the estranged home

Love that enables us to reach out to others

Love that reflects our pain, and our joy

Love that speaks to our loneliness, and our aloneness

Love that inspires and calls community

Love that looks into the eye of the other, and sees the eye of God

Love that feeds our hunger to belong

Love that confirms our identity

Love that reaches beyond the now, to the past and the future

Love that was, is and will be, forever
