Remember When: Thoughts on Christian Community

Remember When

We climbed a mountain, you and I
It was a sight to behold
Such perspective we would gain
Eternal Beauties yet untold

So we built an altar
From our laughter and our tears
And those words of faith
That we’ve rehearsed throughout the years

Then there came the time
For us to journey down
Back into the valley
Where deep, deep need abounds

I confess I am reluctant
To leave these heights for what’s below
But we’re called to move from heights to depths
Just like the rivers flow

Downward, ever downward
In humility and grace
To live out our altar moments
In the everyday

We’ve spoken of eternal things
That stir us heart and soul
Now we must go live these things
We can’t describe, but Know

So you go your way, I’ll go mine
And we will meet again
Every time we need to hear
Those words:  “Remember when…”
