163. My Predicament 

            Church was my rock. Being caught between a rock and a hard place was when it no longer matched my belief system. My creed includes Christ and the Bible as part of an ever-expanding consciousness; not exactly as it says in the Viewpoint Fellowship Church Literature. When the songs I sing in choir, the beliefs express in the preaching, the music or the literature differ or are limiting, I am in predicament of whether to be attending.

            A song I wrote September 11, 2000 still speaks to me. I’d like to share it with you.

I know a love larger than a father

I know a love larger than a mother

I know a love larger than a mountain

I know a love larger than a God

Love that is boundless

Love that is free

Love with no expectations

Love that’s inside of me

Love flowing out another

Love listening as we

Sort out our futures

And live the life we see

Love that’s full of anger

Anger allowed to speak

Lifts us in its power

Allows others to see

I know a love broader than a sister

I know a love larger than the sea

This love that spans the horizons

And keeps filling me.

                                                Thank you for listening.
