My Neighbours Proclaim I Am Not A Christian - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

My neighbours say I am not a Christian...
because I rarely proudly go to church
weekly week by week proudly as they do.

Yet I worship God spend time with God...
every day we meet still have so much to say
while God’s poor suffer daily for them I pray.

Worship for me cannot be but once one day a week...
among those already happy proudly saved
while in the wilderness still cry our Lord's lost sheep?

Sermons for those already saved these words do not stay...
where Holy Spirit and I walk among sinners weak
my energy dissipates as I run the race to ease pain of sinners weak?

This may be all in vain I unseen do as their cry...
comes to me ever anew but with their pain I remain
for the flock has shepherds many these poor have not any?

God I miss fellowship in worship with my fellow man...
but in the pulpit I rarely stand within any given community
yet I pray for local churches who support the weak at every stand.
