a few verses as a sample of our poetry

Heaven Come Down

God our Father loved the broken and wounded cosmos,
a world hungering for meaning and beauty,
so, he sent his beloved Son as Living Bread from heaven.
Heaven come down.

In the God-tradition of hospitable presence
Urban Abbey bakes daily bread for neighbors,
so, that hungry souls can be filled with Living Bread from heaven.
Heaven come down.

Bill Morrison
Abbot, Urban Abbey
