This Easter


Early Christian Art


This Easter, we met in a sanctuary

Not a temple, but they were the same.

And we gathered with two hundred others,

Not twelve, but we both were one.

And we sang hymns, not psalms.

Same music.

And heard the story we have heard

Every year. Same experience.

And, in the end, we knew

Once again

Strength, courage and hope

As did those followers

So long ago

And although we are so different

In so many ways,

We, united by practice and belief,

Are the same
