Greetings, Fellow Harvesters of CAC!
In response to requests for this poem–which we read at Tuesday PM’s service–I’m posting it here for you.
Don’t forget, although this is a 5th Sunday month, SERVICES ARE AT NORMAL TIMES, 10:00 AM & 6:30 PM. (We traded this one for the breather after MHCR 2010).
I CANNOT CALL YOU FRIEND!
My friend, I stand in judgment now.
And I feel that you are to blame somehow.
On earth I walked with you day by day.
But never did you point the way.
You knew the LORD,
In His truth and His glory.
But never did you share the story!
My knowledge then was very dim.
You could have lead me safely to Him.
You taught me many things,
This is true.
I called you friend,
And I trusted you.
But I have learned,
And now it is too late
You could have kept me from this fate,
We walked by day,
And talked by night,
And yet you showed me not the light.
You let me live and love,
You knew I would never live on high.
Yes, I called you friend in life,
I trusted you through joy and strife.
And yet on coming to this end, —
I CANNOT CALL YOU
This is a wake-up call. Let’s make it a weekend of communicating the things of God to those who call us their friend.
God bless His devoted Harvesters!
