The deacon's song

After Acts 6:1-7

A duty born of a complaint
a complaint born of a practice
or non-practice, some ignored,
some disregarded for not having
the right credentials.

Created to serve, to serve
basic needs, to feed, born
to demonstrate a caring heart,
to meet the needs of the vulnerable,
to become the feet and hands
of the good news.

The seven sang:
We are the good news.

We are the gospel.
