    A Poem for Mother’s Day

    From the moment our Maker formed me in your womb,
    A mother’s love I received from you.
    You fed, protected, and kept me warm;
    While I grew, and kicked and tried to move,
    Eagerly awaiting to be born.

    Your water broke, through pains of birth, you brought me forth into the world;
    The room grew quiet, all eyes upon me, listening for my cry;
    Five fingers, five toes, a healthy boy, the nurse replied.

    May I have him, you asked, a mother’s love he needs right now;
    Your arms and breasts love’s cradle beckoned;
    Your heartbeat for nine months love’s composition.

    You bid me calm and rest from all my wailing;
    A mother’s complete devotion unfailing.
    And for a lifetime of your love and doting, I pray:
    Bless you moms, this Mother’s Day!

    I theorizing that Evangelicals have lost their direction as a byproduct of the Trump alignment. I’m suspecting this mental state will continue as long as the Trump attachment continues. Trump is personally adrift, and this flows down through the Evangelical World. Trumpism is now the Christian status quo and no significant change is foreseeable in the short term.

    Do you think this is an accurate theory on where go are going in the next few years?

  6. Michael says:


    All Trump did was give permission for what was already latent to be expressed.
    The vast majority of evangelicals live outside the U.S., so we have to be careful when using that descriptor.
    I’m not a prophet or the son of a prophet, but I see the end of Christendom in this country, a complete collapse of the structures and systems that once were.
    I will not live to see it in all probability, but I’m glad for it.
    Only then can the true church remnant rebuild…

    Michael I was unsure what label to use, so I choose Evangelical…as in historical Neo-Evangelical..because it’s ubiquitous nature. I’m struck by your mention of the international nature of Evangelicalism.

    Maybe you are a prophet after all. I sought your thoughts for exactly the International scope. Many of us have developed International relationships over our lifetime. The thought of inviting those foreign connections to bring their influence here is on my mind. I wonder if the same thoughts are going off in a lot of heads right now.

    As an example, the heart of evangelical Anglicanism now beats primarily in Africa…America is a mission field…
