The wisdom of women: discernment of thought,
with love's intuition that cannot be bought;
how long will we limit these God given gifts
while fudging church unity, fearful of rifts?

All people are worthy and all have a place,
all people are gifted with God-given grace,
yet barriers are built by presumption and creed,
by those who are fearful that power will bleed.

So should we look back to the power of the cross,
the power of love shown in infinite loss?
In Christ see the God-head, our skin and our bone,
not high and majestic ensconced on a throne.
