the sum of our parts

it is about who we are
together – who we are
not whether I manage to stand or kneel
not whether I sing or remain in silence –
we are more than the sum of our parts

a mystery is shared –
in us GOD made known
in us – our community
eat with me! drink with me! –
we are more than the sum of our parts

each time our lives touch
we are the gathered ‘church’
God’s people – Christ made known to many
He is the reason we worship –
we are more than the sum of our parts

church is not behind closed doors
composed of stone and clay
neither is it only a “Sunday special”
though we choose to meet this day
it is about identity, not detached entity

we are more than the sum of our parts

    You have expressed so well what is on my heart many times – we are more than what others eyes may see. God bless you I loved this line “church is not behind closed doors
    composed of stone and clay” we are that body who are the church . Be encouraged Lucy God bless you ,
