lost silence....voice found

"Our lives begin
to end
the day
we become silent
about the things that matter.

In the end,
we will remember
not the words
of our enemies,
but the silence of our friends."
(Martin Luther King Jr.)

I for one
have been
far too long.
On behalf
of my
and sisters
I will now speak.

Deitrich Bonhoeffer
Sin (Brokenness)
wants to be alone with people...
wants to remain unknown.

Sin (Brokenness)
that has been spoken
has lost all its power.

The sin/brokenness
in the church
is the inability
to offer hospitality...
to listen to stories...
to see past
one dimensional characterizations.

I will add
my voice.
I will speak
that this
this brokenness
will no longer
have power.
