Gathered Meeting
"For one day within your temple heals every day alone."
Tim Manion, after Ps. 27

No pulpit
  or preacher
no organ
  or carillon

as the scent
  of rough-hewn
  wooden benches
  like incense
  rises

and sunlight
  adorns
  the modest
  whitewashed walls

gathered
  we breathe forth
  the Spirit
  into our midst
our hearts
  flames of a common fire
  radiate forth
    the Master
      the Teacher
        the Comforter
