What I think church should be?
by Kyle Barrow
Church should be joyous like going on tour for the first time in a tour bus
or buying a Lamborghini Urus.
Priests should preach more so that we’ll be inspired and be them in the next big four.
More seating should be available, it’ll be like a family table.
“God is great!” yes all the time,
surely our faith will be fine.
“The choirs are extravagant,” yeah, could be more, it should never be a bore.
If there’s ever a church tour I’ll go for sure, maybe I’ll learn about musical contours.
If a church was near a shore, seeing the sunset the children might not think it’s boring,
it’ll be fun, like jumping in puddles while rain is falling.
Church is like one of the important things in religion,
not all religions but for the Catholics and Christians and let’s not forget about the Pentecostals.
So yes, this is what I think church should be.
It may be delusional but it’s my image so that’ll make me delusional.
I Dream of Church Being…
by Sierra Jo Mc Collin
Church is a place
Where you feel God’s grace
Communion is your Body and Blood
Union is the feeling from above
He give us a chance
To make a difference
Church is a blessing
That so many are missing
Sermons are the words you speak
Burdens you gladly keep
All you have you give to us
But all we do is fuss
Church is sanctuary
Where we can just be merry
Praise and worship is all we do for you
Raise and take ownership is what you do
You’re our weekly treat
And daily meet
I dream of church..
by Ebenezer Smart
I dream of church being good,
Just like it should.
It should have friends not foes,
Like me and my Uncle Joe.
I dream of church being joyous
Well that’s very obvious.
Everyone should be dancing and rejoicing.
And also singing.
I dream of church being fun,
And not boring “None!”
It should have activities for everyone.
For child, man and woman.
I dream of church being glorious,
It should have communion,
For it is our religion.
by Alvin Daniel
I wish of church being, more funded
So that they can give more things to people who need them
And so that more people can come and say amen,
I wish of church being, an more organized group
That its members would do selfless deeds
Without asking for anything back in need
I wish for church to be able
To help those in jail, to be able to redeem themselves
And go to god and hail
I wish of church being, a home
So that the members can bring in the homeless and give them shelter
So that everyone’s hearts would feel better
I wish for church to be able to help the world
To take all the corrupt
And help them construct a better way of living
I wish of church too help our feelings
Whenever someone is feeling sad or mad
They can help us feel not so bad
I just wish
I Dream Of Church Being…
by Kyle Sookdeo
I dream of church being,
a second home.
Somewhere where I can feel safe
and comfortable to speak out.
In the church’s serene environment,
I wish to learn,
about myself and others.
With my peers, I explore new
themes and avenues.
There are questions that endlessly,
run through my head.
“What I faith? Why is it necessary
to learn about God?”
When people go through pain and suffering,
Why do they turn to God?
Do words of prayer have power?
These are things I want to discuss.
That is why, to me,
I wish for Church to be
an institute of learning.
What church should be
by Akidel Peters
SCENE ONE: A BLACK MAN A POLICE OFFICER A DOG AND A CAR
(ONE HOT SUNDAY AFTERNOON A PREIST CAME UP TO A MAN MINDING HIS BUSINESS AND SAID)
Father: Good Morning Mr. Miles you haven’t been to church lately. I understand everyone has troubles with faith and is my job to help with that so what is the issue Mr. Miles
Mr Miles: Father no disrespect but that building is no longer a church, ever since you turned away that boy and his family just because they were homeless I realized that is not a church.
Father: I don’t understand we praise God we sing and we worship him. How is that not a church? Ok Mr. Miles, since you know what a church is, tell me what a church should be.
Mr Miles: Okay Father I will tell you what a church should be. A church should be like a black man, a police officer and a dog.
Father: HAHAHAHAHA! You can’t be serious. You telling me how that my church isn’t a church and yet you come out here saying nonsense.
Mr Miles: You see Father, that is how I know that is not a church. Let me tell you what I mean. A church should be just like a police offices and an black man and a dog. A police officer and a black man could have how many differences but when they see a dog coming, both of them would hop on the hood of the police vehicle to get away from the dog. That is what a church should be….a place where people come come together for one goal and the goal shoud be to worship God. Once you turned away that poor family I knew that wasn’t a church.
Father: Ight Mr Miles. You made your point but you have to realize them was not good people. Them
ruin their own life by failing school. They was going and bring we down too
Mr Miles: Like everything I say went into one ear and came out the next. I don’t want to hear that. A
church should be like a water purification centre. No matter how dirty the water is or how much oil get
into it, is the water purification centre’s job to remove it. The church should be just like that.
Father: Oh gosh Mr. Miles….go and open your own damn church!
(THE PREIST WAS ABOUT TO LEAVE TO GO BACK TO THE CHURCH WHEN HE LOOKED AT
MR.MILES AND SAID)
Father: We go see who end up in heaven.
Mr Miles: And that is how I know to never go back to your church if you were so certain I would not
get to heaven, you would help me and not shame me because that is WHAT A CHURCH
SHOULD BE .
(FATHER WALKED AWAY IN A HURRY AND MISTER MILES WENT BACK TO MINDING HIS
