I WILL GO

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" (Isaiah 6:8)

The echo
Of a seagull's cry
On a winter's dawn

Crystal clear
Carrying a call
From another coast

It comes to me
At the altar

Sacrifice
Separation

From all who hold me
Dear

To leave familiar loves
I am reluctant

Resisting
Surrender

But still I will go
If You lead

And need me
To take Your People

To heart
In a different land

Gratefully and
In Love

As Eucharist
In Your hands

(Shankill, a November Sunday 2016)
