What is the gospel story?
Is it dappled in many colors?
Does it sing through time?
Letting us know the hues,
  of every color and turn
  of phrase and then fall.

What does the gospel show us?
How to live, how to die, how to see?
Do we disciple, do we grow, do we hear?
All of it comes in bursts of story
  told to us by each author, each different,
  can we embrace the difference,?

What is gospel for our lives?
Is it loves song come down?
Is it knowing we are God's child?
Do we dare to let it come out,
  abundantly given, without hesitation,
  to the different, the lost, and the scorned?
