Yom HaShoah

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.          

         Yom HaShoah             Holocaust Remembrance Day

Children in a line     disappear one by one         through a sooty door.

Who remembers     what they are leaving,         who they used to be?

Our fear is the fuel     for the furnace.         There is always more.

Forgiveness comes,     but first we are stripped         of our forgetfulness,

standing naked in line,     breathing the foul air.         There is no demarcation

between any of us now.     A pile of ragged things         we once clung to.

Who remembers     who we used to be?         They go first; we may follow:

children in a line     disappear one by one         into the mercy of God.

                    Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
