This bread


We make this bread in brokenness

and tentatively mould its form.

But life within creates, unseen,

a greater whole.


We bake this bread in hopefulness,

and wonder at the mystery

as fusing seed and rising yeast

commune as one.


We break this bread in faithfulness:

then eat and find ourselves renewed.

Bread for the world, work of our hands,

and blessed by God.


We ache for bread enough to share

with all whose hearts and hope are cold;

but ‘til that day when love flies free

God must send us.
