Treasure Island

Peter Hall

(Sydney, Australia.)

Anointed To Belong


What every joint supplies 
Both significant and insignificant 
Both esteemed and not respected
Both seen and hidden
Is part of the whole...

The whole body 
of the One who sources it's life 
Continually
Flowingly
Powerfully.< br>
This sea of people 
With a swell of its own momentum
Flows into each other
Grows into each other
Robust
Always works.

Anointed to belong to each other
Anointed to anoint each other
With a flow of life
A flow of power
A flow of grace from member to member.

Only those who see the Kingdom
Only those who enter the kingdom
Only those whose heart is common with the members
To know the King
Are invited to belong.

You are invited.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

We take our lead from Christ, who is the source of everything we do. He keeps us in step with each other. His very breath and blood flow through us, nourishing us so that we will grow up healthy in God, robust in love. (Ephesians 4: 16 MSG)

from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. (Ephesians 4: 16 NKJV)

They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us. But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. (I John 2: 19,20 NKJV)

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
