If Christ Jesus dwells in a man as his friend and noble leader,
that man can endure all things,
for Christ helps and strengthens us and never abandons us.
He is a true friend.

“There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.”

“Besides this May
There is Another—
Our Speculations of the Foreigner!
Some know Him whom We knew—
A Nature be
Where Saints, and our plain going Neighbor
