Faith - Poem by Vanessa Hughes

Does faith need a church
To feel close to God
Does praying in numbers
Feel more part of God's squad

Does faith need a bible
To know right from wrong
Does dubious history
Help people belong

Does faith need a vicar
Or priest to be near
To make it more likely
God will hear

Does faith need labelling
And given a name
Only praying with people
Who feel just the same

My faith has no rules
I simply believe
God is my maker
He's every breath I breathe.
