Bread of peace…

May 5, 2011


this is to remember
that on the same day Osama
bin Laden was killed
we had a fellowship meal
at church

alongside the ham balls
and cheesy potatoes
there was Turkish bread
and dirty rice with
cilantro

though it is not our typical practice
to greet one another with hugs…
on this day we embraced
as brother and sister with open
arms and hearts

we sat together and talked
about weddings, jobs, a new house

we ate bread
shared between children of Abraham
who teaches us to welcome
strangers into our tent
