God came to Church Today

 

God came to church today,
and didn’t rush away
as so many do
after the allotted hour,
but spoke to all, with love and care.
I suddenly became aware
of how much like the
rest of us God looked:
white,
aging,
straight,
able-bodied
smartly dressed.
Some said that was good
because it meant God understood
they way we like things here, and
that God could stay,
as long as He promised not to get in the way.
