took place in the Plas de Marines on Sunday 23rd June. I was asked to write and read a poem on the theme of Past and Future which is the theme of the festival this year. I am no poet, so this offering was written as the spirit led, so to speak. This is it.
Yesterday, Today and Forever
God never changes; He’s always the same,
As in the past, we can call on His name.
Wherever we go and whatever we do,
He’s always beside us because nothing is new
We are told not to worry because that is a sin,
So we can tell Him about it and then we shall win.
The battle is always not to doubt but to trust
Because God is our Father and He’s always just.
As in the past, He has always been there
So in the future, we can rely on His care
Let’s get out our mobiles and dial up His number
Don’t be complacent; it’s easy to slumber.
So what can we say at the end of the day
When life just seems to be ebbing away?
Our future is glorious in the place God’s prepared
With flowers and trees and our body repaired.
