Is the institution of the church
to become a dead chrysalis
bound for eternity
in the desiccated husk of the past?
New life always needs a breaking out,
a cracking of past structures,
that the butterfly of resurrection
can emerge into the sunshine.
A repeating process,
new growth more beautiful,
with each emergence.
May we be brave enough
To let the Spirit go where it will.
