at the Lord's Supper

Beside the anticipation of bread and wine,
in the resurrection shadow of the cross
we share the stillness You and I.

We converse in unspoken words
our separation too wide for speech
our meeting too close for silence.

We bring no sin here –
for your presence is cleansing
and the shadow of my sin shrinks
with Your rising.

We bring no scars here -
for your presence is healing
and the shadow of my hurts fade
before Your light.

There is only one shadow here;
the bright shadow of love
which shines
from Your heart.
