From a cell

After Ephesians 1:1-14

From a cell he writes
his letter to the faithful
in the city of Artemis,
twelve hundred miles 
of separation but still
together as one. He 
writes of being chosen
together, predestined
together, sharing 
an adoption,
a redemption, sharing
forgiveness. Distance
is of no consequence
because of what they 
share in common,
their sharing surpassing
the wealth of their cities,
the culture of their societies,
the strength of their empire.
And he calls them saints.
And he calls them faithful.

Nothing can separate us from God's love and each other.
Blessings, Glynn!
