I left church the other day with my ears ringing,
so I answered the phone.
“Hello?” I said, but I heard no one–
only more ringing.
Odd, I thought,
yawning though it was noon,
Who would be calling at this hour?
and I went home and slept.
Later that day, I got another call.
This time I heard a still, small voice.
“Do you believe any of that?”
“Believe what?” I asked.
“Good,” said the voice,
“now go out and love your neighbor.”
I like having these conversations.
I think I’ll go back next week!
